As reported by police spokesperson Captain Tlangelani Rikhotso, a suspect, Kholiwe Moses Janda has recently been arrested in connection with over R1 million tender fraud. But after his case was postponed on January 24, he managed to get released on a R100.000 bail.
“It is alleged that in May 2018, approximately R1.7 million was deposited into the suspects’ business account. The matter was subsequently reported to the Hawks and the investigation ensued,” she said.
“Investigations by the Serious Commercial Crime investigation unit of the Hawks revealed that no services had been rendered by the suspects’ company to warrant the alleged payment by the municipality. The suspect was subsequently arrested at his home in Soweto on 24 January 2019.”
For now, that fraud case was postponed again to March 5.
