Suspended ANC secretary-general Ace Magashule’s former personal assistant, Moroadi Cholota, has broken her silence regarding events surrounding her interrogation by the FBI and the Hawks in the US.

Cholota has described her interrogation by the FBI and the Hawks in November last year as intimidation.

The state said she would be extradited from the US and charged with corruption.

According to the NPA, Cholota has not been co-operating with the prosecuting authority which announced last November that she was the state’s key witness.


Cholota relayed how on the morning of September 2021 she was woken up by loud banging on the door of her apartment in Baltimore by FBI officials.

They immediately ordered her to get dressed and come with them.

She claims she was not told where she was going.
