IEC monitoring developments after the arrest of one of its commissioners

The Electoral Commission says it is monitoring the developments regarding the arrest of one of its commissioners, Nomsa Masuku, allegedly for corruption.

Masuku’s case relates to her time as a Standard Bank employee between 2006 and 2013.

It is alleged as head of the bank’s corporate social investment unit, Masuku improperly directed scholarships to her friends and families while receiving kickbacks amounting to R1.2 million.

Masuku made a brief appearance in the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Friday and was released on R20,000 bail.

In a short statement, the IEC said that Masuku’s charges do not relate to her tenure as an employee and commissioner.

According to the IEC’s website, Masuku worked at the commission in 1998 where she developed the election company’s strategy and implementation framework for education and democracy development.

Between 2006 and 2013, Masuku went into the private sector, working at Standard Bank as the head of corporate social investment.

It is during this time when she allegedly committed the corrupt acts she is accused of.

In 2018, Masuku was appointed by President Cyril Ramaphosa to serve as an IEC Commissioner.

During her time as Commissioner, Masuku has overseen three elections, the 2019 and 2024 general elections and the 2021 local government elections.
