AKA’s Former Body Guard Accused Of Paying Hitmen Who Murdered The Bodyguard Of Fort Hare Uni Vice chancellor

Anwar Khan, once hailed as a trusted bodyguard within the celebrity circles of South Africa, finds himself at the center of a shocking scandal.

Accused of orchestrating a crime network that struck fear into the University of Fort Hare community, Khan’s alleged involvement in the murder of Mboneli Vesele, the personal bodyguard of the university’s Vice Chancellor, Prof Sakhela Buhlungu, has sent shockwaves through the nation.

Reports suggest that Khan’s security firm, Pentagon Group, played a pivotal role in a meticulously planned scheme that exploited the university through a combination of fear tactics and financial fraud. The modus operandi allegedly involved orchestrating deadly shootings, which were then leveraged to coerce the university into awarding exorbitant security contracts to Pentagon Group.

Shockingly, over a short span of six months, Khan’s firm reportedly raked in a staggering R60 million from providing security services with just five guards—a glaring indicator of the inflated nature of these contracts.

The repercussions of this elaborate scheme have been dire, with the university reeling from financial losses totaling a jaw-dropping R171 million. The fallout has not only plunged the institution into a state of financial turmoil but has also exposed a web of corruption that threatens the integrity of one of South Africa’s oldest and most esteemed educational establishments.

Over the Easter weekend, Khan, alongside 14 others, including university staff members, was apprehended by authorities. The arrests have unveiled the depths of corruption that permeated the university’s security contracts, shedding light on a network of individuals complicit in endangering lives and destabilizing the institution’s financial stability.

Legal proceedings are set to unfold at the Dimbaza Magistrate’s Court in the Eastern Cape, where Khan and his associate, Terence Joubert, will face charges of fraud and corruption. The prosecution is adamant about opposing bail for both defendants, citing the gravity of their alleged offenses and the potential threat they pose to society.

This scandal serves as a stark reminder of the urgent need for robust oversight and ethical governance in the procurement of security services by educational institutions. The revelation of Khan’s involvement, a figure previously entrusted with the safety of high-profile individuals in the entertainment industry, adds a layer of betrayal and disbelief to an already distressing situation.

As the case progresses, the nation watches with bated breath, hopeful for justice to be served and for measures to be implemented to prevent similar instances of corruption and exploitation in the future.
