MantasheEWN reports that Mineral Resources Minister Gwede Mantashe has revealed that seven suspects linked to his department have been arrested on charges of corruption in a clean-up of the Department of Mineral Resources (DMR).  

Mantashe has already closed two provincial offices, one in Mpumalanga and the other in Limpopo, which were tainted with allegations of corruption and maladministration linked to the term of former minister Mosebenzi Zwane.  Speaking at the Mining Joburg Indaba on Wednesday, Mantashe indicated that he had fired two officials with seven others facing the courts.  “There are seven people in court.  Two have been fired in the department today, but we did not want to do that publicly.  We wanted to keep it under the radar,” he stated.
