eThekwini city manager’s wife Cynthia Nzuza granted bail
She is charged in connection to the eThekwini waste collection tender fraud case valued at over R400 million.
DURBAN - eThekwini city manager Sipho Nzuza’s wife, Cynthia, has been released on R30,000 bail while appearing in the Durban Commercial Crimes Court.
She was arrested by the Hawks earlier on a charge of conspiracy to commit fraud.
Nzuza is charged in connection with the eThekwini waste collection tender fraud case valued at over R400 million.
Former eThekwini mayor, Zandile Gumede, Nzuza’s husband, Sipho, and at least 15 others are also facing charges.
Cynthia Nzuza faces charges of fraud, corruption and money laundering.
It is also alleged that she facilitated the installation of built-in kitchen cupboards at her mother-in-law's house.
At the same time, her husband, Sipho, is out on R50,000 bail after he was arrested earlier this year by the Hawks.
He allegedly facilitated corruption which resulted in the eThekwini municipality losing millions of rands.
The accused are all expected back in court next Thursday.
