Sunday World reports that Former president Kgalema Motlanthe has resigned as a trustee of the Sithole Family Trust after he was misled.

This comes after the Sithole family lied to Motlanthe and used the trust to persue their own interests without telling Motlanthe.

The Sithole Family Trust reportedly owes a law firm over R600 000 in legal bills which Motlanthe does not know of.

Montlanthe had been made a trustee to the Sithole Family Trust to make sure Sithole’s family would be fine if anything happened to him.

Motlanthe reportedly learnt from a story published by Sunday World that the Trust had been taken to court after failing to pay a debt.
