Kaizer Chiefs football manager, Bobby Motaung, is expected to appear in the Nelspruit regional court on Thursday on allegations of fraud and forgery.
Motaung and a Mpumalanga businessman, Herbert Theledi, were arrested by the Hawks on Wednesday. They were arrested in connection with alleged tender fraud and corruption related to the R1.2-billion Mbombela Stadium.
According to the Hawks spokesperson, McIntosh Polela, the duo allegedly forged SA Revenue Services documents to obtain a contract to build the Mbombela Stadium. Earlier on, media reports said that the Hawks were looking for the third suspect.
Motaung is a director of Lefika Emerging Equity (Pty) Ltd, a company that won a tender to design the stadium. The construction of the stadium was fraught with allegations of fraud and corruption.
The speaker of the Mbombela municipality, Jimmy Mohlala, was murdered in Januarry 2009 for allegedly threatening to blow the whistle on alleged corruption in the construction of the stadium. Mohlala's assassins are yet to be found after the charges against five accused in the case were withdrawn.
