MK vets probed over mis-spent money
Top Umkhonto weSizwe Military Veterans' Association (MKMVA) officials are alleged to have turned investment holdings into their own personal piggy bank
A forensic report alleged that the funds were used to pay for jewellery, spa treatments and school drama lessons, with large sums withdrawn before Christmas, the Mail&Guardian reported.
The draft investigation report by SizweNtsalubaGobodo named four officials.
They allegedly took R5.4 million, almost half of the money coming into two accounts that the auditors scrutinised.
A group of former soldiers from exile known as the "commissariat" have laid criminal charges against the four. There is also a court application to freeze the MKVA investment accounts and trusts.
