It is really true when some people say no one is above the law. The core staff of Eastern Cape Health Department Ayanda Matinise was arrested by police on Saturday 1 August 2020. Police allegedly caught him transporting alcohol in a state vehicle. It is further alleged that the accused tried to evade arrest by attempting to bribe police officials.
Eastern Cape Division Regional spokesperson Anelisa Ngcakani said
Matinise appeared at the King William’s Town Magistrate’s Court today for fraud, use of a state vehicle without consent and violating lockdown regulations as he allegedly transported alcohol.
“His matter was postponed to 13 October 2020 for further investigation. The court granted him R5000 bail,” she said.
