Peggy Nkonyeni, the speaker of the KwaZulu-Natal legislature, will go on trial in August for corruption. Earlier today Pietermaritzburg regional magistrate Chris van Vuuren set the matter down for trial from 13 to 18 August.

Nkonyeni is alleged to have accepted kickbacks amounting to R20 000 and free accommodation at Steenberg Boutique in Constantia in return for influencing the provincial health department to buy equipment from one of her associates at an inflated price.

Lindelihle Nkwanazi, the manager of Rowmoor Investments, and Mduduzi Victor Ntshangase, the head of the supply chain in the KwaZulu-Natal health deparment, will appear in the dock alongside Nkonyeni.
