Mpisanes to have their assets returned

Businesswomen Shauwn Mpisanes home raided

This is the home of businesswoman Shauwn Mpisane in La Lucia, Durban. Mpisane has new charges of fraud against her.

DURBAN - Durban businesswoman Shauwn Mpisane and her husband Sibusiso will have their assets returned to them.

They include a number of luxury cars and were seized by the Asset Forfeiture Unit in 2012.

This was after the NPA obtained a freezing order to the value of R70-million in respect of the Mpisanes&39; property and several business entities.

Mpisane had been accused of inflating suppliers&39; invoices in an attempt to cut her tax bill.

She was also accused of violating the Close Corporations Act by remaining Zikhulise&39;s sole member when she had a previous fraud conviction.

Mpisane  was acquitted earlier this year on all charges.
