Briefly.co.za reported that the suspects faced charges including money laundering, fraud, and corruption in connection with a R745 million tender.

These new arrests will be carried out after investigators from as far as the United States collaborated on the cases emerging from the numerous inquiries currently underway.

The NPA is charging those set to be arrested over the R54.5 billion tender for just over 1 000 trains. Originally set to cost R36 billion, Transnet is set to have the transactions declared illegal.

In response to the news of his impending arrest, Molefe simply commented that:

"I am not involved in any corruption. What case is there for me to answer? I am sorry to disappoint you."
