EWN reports that the Department of Public Works confirmed that Anusha Gordhan, daughter of Pravin Gordhan, was not involved in any irregular activities.

According to the department, there are no irregularities regarding the tender that was awarded to Vox Telecommunications, to which Anusha is linked.

This comes after the EFF launched an attack against Pravin's daughter, claiming she had a hand in scoring over R80 million worth of tenders from her father.

Since the accusations were thrown, Pravin opened criminal cases against Julius Malema and the EFF.

In return, the EFF laid criminal charges against Pravin just a day later.

The Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries also came forward to insist that contracts with Vox Telecommunications are all above board.

Briefly.co.za gathered that since Anusha has a position as a non-exec director, she doesn't stand to gain anything financially.
