JOHANNESBURG - The Hawks on Friday said they are confident Kaizer Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung and his co-accused will stand trial for fraud relating to the construction of the Mbombela Stadium.

Motaung and Herbert Theledi were released on R50 000 bail on Thursday while the third accused, Chris Gribb, secured his freedom on Friday.

He was released on R20,000 bail.

The Hawk's McIntosh Polela said, “The state did not oppose bail because we are confident they will come back on 15 October and answer to the charges against them.”

Meanwhile, a whistleblower into the alleged tender corruption relating to the building of the stadium was murdered in 2009.

James Nkambule was poisoned after he claimed that corrupt politicians were behind a "hit list" in Mpumalanga and gave a copy to journalists and police.
