Olly Mlamleli allegedly arrested

Olly Mlamleli
The former mayor of the Mangaung Metro, Olly Mlamleli, has allegedly been arrested.

OFM News has reliably learned the arrest is linked to her role in the controversial R200-million unlawful asbestos deal when she was MEC for Human Settlements.

The Hawks in the Free State tell OFM News that at this stage they can neither confirm nor deny Mlamleli’s arrest, however, DA councillor Mokgadi Kganakga tells OFM News the former mayor was not at a council meeting today, allegedly claiming ill health.

This follows the arrest of Edwin Sodi, former head of the Free State’s Department of Human Settlements Nthimotse ‘Tim’ Mokhesi, and former national Human Settlements Director-General Thabane Zulu earlier on Wednesday.
