South Africa's Finance Minister Praveen Gordin may be charged this week for alleged graft. A local newspaper is reporting that 30 witnesses have been lined up to testify against Gordin and three former officials from the South African Revenue Service. Police summoned Gordin last week in connection with an investigation into a rogue spy unit. The division was allegedly set up at the revenue service during his tenure. However, there are claims that there's no evidence to support the investigation, and that Gordin is being targeted by a faction in the government and ruling African National Congress.
