An official charge of fraud has been laid against Dr S. Mzimela at the Cape Town Central Police Station. He is suspected of fraud involving approximately R 12 000 paid from the Parliamentary Whips Fund to his wife, against the express rules and regulations of Parliament regarding this fund. We are dismayed by the apparent deceit and dishonesty allegedly perpetrated by Dr Mzimela against his colleagues.
