Irene Mpofu

  • University of Pretoria, MPhil in Fraud, Risk and Money Laundering


Irene Mpofu from Johannesburg, South Africa, is an advocate at heart. She believes that economic crimes, grand corruption, and the capture of governments are all impediments to the realisation of Africa’s sustainable development goals; and plans to alleviate poverty and achieve a more equitable society. She holds an LLM from the University of Pretoria focused on the admissibility of evidence gathered by commissions of inquiry in criminal prosecutions. She is currently pursuing an MPhil in Fraud, Risk and Money Laundering at the University of Pretoria. She hopes that her research will assist South Africa and other developing nations in their fight against corruption and capture.
