Scorpions rocked by bribery claim - SA
Wisani wa ka Ngobeni|Johannesburg

23 April 2004 08:51

A top Scorpions investigator who probed, among others, Deputy President Jacob Zuma and businessman David King, is himself now the subject of an investigation by the elite unit on allegations of bribery.

Cornwell Tshavhungwa was suspended last month on the instruction of National Director of Public Prosecutions Bulelani Ngcuka, after representations by senior Scorpions investigators.

Tshavhungwas colleagues are probing him for allegedly accepting bribes from senior government officials at a government development finance institution in Mpumalanga.

But Scorpions sources sympathetic to Tshavhungwa, the Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, claim he is being targeted for pursuing investigations against senior political figures. They say many officials within the Scorpions are jealous of his successes and would like to see his downfall.

1. Background?
What/Who is a Scorpion?

Most of us here are pretty America-centric. I personally read a lot of international news and it even eluded my grasp.

A little background on non-American news would go a L-O-N-G way, even here at DU!
