gavel thumb100 TimesLive reports that a Cape Town court clerk‚ Siyabulela Sono‚ has been granted bail of R2‚000 after appearing in the Wynberg Magistrate's Court on Friday for alleged corruption.  

This followed his arrest on Thursday by the Hawk's Serious Corruption Crime unit.  Hawks spokesman Captain Lloyd Ramovha said it was alleged that in late 2016 Sono had allegedly approached a female accused in a theft case and offered to make her case go away in exchange for a R10‚000 bribe.  An initial payment of R5‚000 was made, followed by a final payment during 2017.  The case continued and when the woman’s sentence of correctional supervision was being processed on 1 December 2017‚ she alerted the authorities of her ‘deal’ with the court official culminating in a Hawks probe and his arrest.  The matter has been postponed to 6 March pending further investigations.
