Three TUT students arrested for corruption

Three Tshwane University of Technology (TUT) students are set to appear at before the Specialised Commercial Crime Court in Pretoria on Thursday for corruption.

The students were arrested on Tuesday after demanding a bribe from a security company contracted to the company.

“The suspects, one of whom is a serving member of the Student Representative Council and two former TUT students, allegedly demanded R100 000 from a security company owner in exchange of having the company’s contract extended by the institution,” Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said on Wednesday.

The National Anti-Corruption Investigation Unit and Crime Intelligence got hold of the information and an undercover operation was instituted.
