Diko family threatens legal action

South Africa

Johannesburg – The Diko family is demanding an apology from Independent Newspapers following a report in the Sunday Independent claiming that Thandisizwe Diko’s company, Royal Bhaca Projects, benefited from a Gauteng PPE tender.

According to the report, the company had already received a R80-million payment from the Department of Health.

Presidential spokesperson, Khusela Diko, has taken a leave of absence to allow for a probe into the alleged tender irregularities.

Gauteng Health MEC Bandile Masuku is also on a month’s leave due to the allegations.

The family has given the newspaper 24 hours to issue a retraction, or face legal action.

Meanwhile, Thandisizwe Diko, is also facing a separate challenge for using the title “King”.

King Ncapayi’s grandchildren say a new king has not been selected after the passing of their grandfather.
