Hawks close fraud & corruption case against Bobby Motaung
The fraud and corruption case against Kaizer Chiefs boss Bobby Motaung has been struck off the roll.
JOHANNESBURG - The fraud and corruption case against Kaizer Chiefs boss Bobby Motaung has now been struck off the roll due to insufficient evidence.
Motaung and his co-accused were charged in 2012 for allegedly using a fake tax clearance certificate in their bid for the construction of the Mbombela Stadium for the 2010 World Cup.
They were also accused of submitting a bogus letter which they claimed was from the municipality to secure a R1 million overdraft.
But now the Hawks say the five-year long case has been closed and will only be reopened if new evidence surfaces.
Spokesperson Hangwani Mulaudzi says, "We have some disputes between ourselves and the leadership in terms of who must be allocated and who must not. So, we said let's allow ourselves three or four days and come back. The meeting is taking place from tomorrow."
Mulaudzi adds that the issue was investigated and it was found that there was not further evidence that would suggest any further investigation.
"Hence the docket has now been taken to the National Prosecuting Authority and a decision has been taken not to proceed with the matter. If we find evidence, off course we will reopen the docket."
