Sodi and the former African National Congress's secretary general, Ace Magashule, will appear in court in April, along with 17 others, on charges of money laundering and corruption about the Free State tender. The tender was meant to remove asbestos from the homes of Free State residents.

SowetanLIVE previously reported that although the Asset Forfeiture Unit froze his assets, he was allowed to use the house but not sell it. Sodi allegedly benefitted from tenders from the government, which were terminated in the past because of poor performance.

South Africans on Facebook noted the fall of Sodi, calling for those who allegedly provided him with tenders to follow suit.

Amos Sekhaulelo said:

“Easy come, easy go. Edwin Sodi is one of the parasitic and not innovative tenderpreneurs feeding off unproductive patronage often dispensed by the government."

Nontokonina Ndlunkulu Toto Nocanda added:

“Those who gave him tenders should follow.”

Sunday Vusi Zulu remarked:

“The bigger they are, the harder they fall.”

Some were on his side

Thabo Popsi wrote:

“Ramaphosa doesn’t know how to stop the MK party or African Congress Transformation. He is now targeting potential funders of those movements. Sodi has been in the headlines for all the wrong things, but no arrest has been made. If there’s no arrest, there is no evidence against him.”

Bongumusa Shezii added:

“He will rise again. I don’t care what haters have to say.”
