‘There’s no docket’: Malusi Booi on Helen Zille’s claim he was arrested because ‘he had lots of money’

Africa-Press – South-Africa. Former DA member Malusi Booi has lambasted the party’s federal chairperson Helen Zille after she made controversial remarks about his tenure in City of Cape Town leadership.

“He had a lot of money that he could not explain. He could not answer some questions and he was arrested and now he is no longer there,” she said in a podcast about Booi’s exit from the DA’s leadership.Responding to Zille’s remarks, Booi said: “Helen Zille, I’ve never attacked you or the DA. I do not understand on what basis you say I was arrested because that is not true. I have never been charged and there’s no docket against me. What is this?”

Booi, who was a City of Cape Town MMC, was suspended from the municipality after a police search and seizure operation at his offices for alleged fraud and corruption last March.

Previously speaking to TimesLIVE about the raid, he said: “Police raided my office in March 2023 and there is no charge against me. I cannot sit idle. I have decided to redirect my energy to other opportunities. I remain a DA member. I will put more effort into my farming activities, do other projects at my disposal.

“I’ve had a great time as a councillor, I love the communities I served. I have a great respect and high regard for the people I worked with.

“I’ve achieved a 99.3% delivery target at human settlements in the city, something unprecedented. I met all my set targets and no funds were returned to Treasury during my tenure because of non-delivery.”
