Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula, the National Assembly speaker of South Africa, is set to file an urgent application before the High Court in Pretoria on 9 April, aiming to halt her potential arrest on corruption charges. The move follows speculation regarding her possible arrest after a raid at her Johannesburg residence in connection with bribery allegations from her tenure as Minister of Defense and Military Veterans. Mapisa-Nqakula demands access to the complete state brief concerning the ongoing investigation, including the police docket, informer dockets, and investigation diary. Her legal team asserts that the state is abusing the legal process.
