Hawks' Crimes Against the State unit to probe man arrested in Parliament


Nelspruit – Kgaugelo Aubrey Mogale, a police sergeant within the Hawks, has been granted bail by the Nelspruit District Court. The court’s decision followed Mogale’s arrest by the Hawks’ Nelspruit-based Serious Corruption Investigation unit on charges of corruption, fraud, and defeating the ends of justice.

The Arrest and Investigation

The arrest of the 47-year-old sergeant stems from a comprehensive financial audit conducted by reputable auditing firm KPMG under the banner of Project Blood Orange. The investigation unveiled that Mogale had received numerous transactions amounting to a total of R6 000 from the main suspect in the case.

Internal procedures further corroborated the findings, revealing that Mogale failed to disclose these financial benefits, leading to the establishment of a case docket. The matter, upon detailed scrutiny, was handed over to the Public Prosecutor. Following a careful review, the prosecutor confirmed the presence of a prima facie case warranting Mogale’s apprehension.

Legal Proceedings

On Tuesday, 4 June 2024, a warrant for Mogale’s arrest was duly authorised and executed. Subsequently, the Nelspruit District Court granted Mogale bail, set at R1 000, with the case now adjourned to 27 June 2024, when further proceedings will take place.

Official Reactions

Major General Gerber, the Provincial Head of the Hawks, expressed deep concern over the charges levied against Mogale, stressing the gravity of such allegations within the Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI).

“The DPCI strives in all aspects to employ members whose integrity is beyond reproach. We strive to be a crime and corruption fighting entity, which is not tainted by allegations of corruption within our own ranks,” Gerber said.

Commitment to Integrity

In a commendable move, Major General Gerber lauded the DPCI for their impartial stance in addressing corruption allegations within their ranks.

“This shows a commitment to be a directorate that will, without fear or favour, apply the law, irrespective of your standing in society. No form of criminality or corruption will be condoned. This must send a clear message to all that as DPCI Mpumalanga, we endeavour to run a clean ship,” he added resolutely.
