Mbombela fraud accused gets bail
Axed municipal manager Jacob Dladla will return to court on October 29.
NELSPRUIT - Axed Mbombela municipal manger Jacob Dladla was granted R15,000 bail in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court in Mpumalanga on Monday.
He is charged with fraud and corruption relating to tender irregularities in the construction of the Mbombela Stadium.
The facility was part of South Africa's 2010 Fifa World Cup tournament.
Dladla, Kaizer Chiefs boss Bobby Motaung and two associates, Herbert Theledi and former Lefika Emerging Equity CEO Chris Grib, appeared in court earlier in the day.
The state asked for a postponement so all the accused can be prosecuted together.
The fired manager appeared unfazed by the cameras clicking away in his face as he made his way into the dock.
Dladla was arrested on Sunday in connection with tender irregularities amounting to R920 million.
He will return to court with Motaung, Theledi and Grib on October 29.
