A senior official and three suppliers who were in connection to an alleged corruption in the office of KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala have been released on bail on Friday.

Nonhlanhla Hlongwa, who is the supply chain manager in the office of the premier, was among them.

Five others who were apprehended in the first raid by the Hawks include Zikalala’s personal assistant – Nomusa Zakwe and CFO Ziphathe Cibane.
