Claims have been made that the NPO Matieni was “hijacked” and used to apply for lottery funding. This was allegedly also the case with Denzhe Primary Care, War_RNA and Mushumo Ushavha Zwanda – all of which received multi-million Rand grants from the National Lottery, for the purpose of building old age homes.
Huma’s Retorts on the Origin of the Funds
GroundUp said that Huma confirmed receiving R5 million for the house in Rustenberg but claims that he wasn’t aware that it came via Matieni, nor from an NPO which had applied for – and received – funding by the Lottery. Huma’s story is that he thought the money came from a person who bought three of his companies.
In May last year, GroundUp reported that the National Lotteries Commission had paid out millions of Rands in grants to organizations that were already involved in questionable, unfinished Lottery-funded projects.
The former chairperson of the Commission, Prof. Alfred Nevhutanda’s term ended in November last year. Three South African’s have been shortlisted to fill his position, namely former electoral commissioner Terry Tselane, human rights lawyer and academic Barney Pityana and former presidency director-general Rev Frank Chikane.
