Tshidi Koloi

Tshidi Koloi, the Free State MEC for Social Development, has made the difficult decision to resign from her position after being charged, along with two others, for an alleged misappropriation of R150,000 during her time as the Executive Mayor of Moqhaka in 2017.

Premier Mxolisi Dukwana has expressed his support for Koloi’s decision to step down, recognizing the importance of upholding the principles of transparency and accountability in government. In her place, Thabo Meeko, current DESTEA MEC, has been appointed as the interim MEC for Social Development.

The Free State government says it remains committed to collaborating with the criminal justice system to eradicate misconduct and corruption from society.

Premier Mxolisi Dukwana’s spokesperson, Sello Dithebe, asserts that the fight against corruption must be relentless and unwavering. No matter where or by whom it is committed, the government will take action to ensure justice prevails.

On Friday 13 October, Koloi and her co-accused appeared in the Kroonstad Magistrate’s Court. They were released on bail amounts ranging from R5,000 to R10,000. This case highlights the importance of due process and the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. However, the ANC Provincial Secretary, Pulediso Motsoeneng, stressed that the seriousness of the charges against Koloi could tarnish the image of the ANC if not handled carefully.

The ANC has established guidelines for its members on how to handle situations like this, emphasizing the need to “step aside” to allow legal processes to proceed unhindered. While respecting the legal principle of innocence until proven guilty, the ANC recognizes the potential impact these charges can have on the party’s reputation.
