At the time News24 reported that Moodley’s unit was investigating the tobacco industry and Mpisi Trading, a company linked to former president Jacob Zuma’s family. Moodley’s suspension is reportedly driven by an internal investigating unit run by Yegan Mundie.
News24 revealed that Mundie has links to a Zuma-family associate, Jen-Chih “Robert” Huang. Huang’s wife was an employee of Mpisi Trading while SARS was investigating the company. Huang is also a business partner of Khulubuse Zuma, Jacob Zuma’s nephew.
