The Star reported on Wednesday that the contracts were awarded in December to expelled ANC Youth League president Malema's allies, which includes businessperson Selby Manthata, his wife Helen Moroeroa, Matome Hlabiosa, Collins Foromo and Mohammed Dada.According to the report, a national intervention team, appointed by President Jacob Zuma, ordered the department to re-advertise the housing tenders.
