South Africa speaker of parliament Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula has handed herself over to police a day after she resigned over corruption allegations.


Mapisa-Nqakula arrived at a police station in centurion, from Johannesburg today and is due to make her first court appearance at Pretoria magistrate’s court on charges of corruption.


The politician who was accused of soliciting bribes in return for awarding contracts as defence minister, resigned on Wednesday, claiming the move was not an indication or admission of guilt.


Last month a special police unit raided her Johannesburg home in connection with the corruption investigation.
