JOHANNESBURG – Controversial Durban businessman Roy Moodley has been accused of “fraud” and “corruption” by the Democratic Alliance (DA) following his involvement in dodgy dealings with President Jacob Zuma.
According to reports, Moodley allegedly received a suspicious payment from Prasa contractor in 2015, and it is not clear why he was paid the money.
Sources say that Prodigy Business Services paid a company belonging to Moodley over R4 million after it received a lucrative tender.
According to political and economic analysts, the report fuels speculation that the Durban businessman has a say as to who gets Prasa tenders.
Both Prodigy and Moodley have denied the allegations and said that they have been in business together for a long time and any form of payment which had been made in the past is absolutely not related to Prasa tenders.
The controversial businessman has been in the spotlight for fraud and corruption following the publication of the “President’s Keepers,” a book by investigative journalist Jacques Pauw, which claims Moodley paid Jacob Zuma a salary after he became president.
In the book, Pauw further highlighted that the money was not declared to the South African Revenue Service.
The DA had been very vocal on the issue and wants both Roy Moodley and Jacob Zuma to be criminally charged.
