A member of parliament caught up in a house ownership dispute in Soweto has dismissed the uproar as a political ploy to get back at him after exposing corruption.

Yesterday The Citizen reported how Democratic Alliance MP, Tsepo Mhlongo, was apparently arrested for malicious damage to property after he allegedly ordered that the house he claims ownership of be demolished while occupants and their belongings were still inside. Sphesihle Duma, one of the occupants, said the property in Orlando East, belonged to his late great-grandmother and had been transferred to his grandmother Elizabeth Duma, who died in February.
