The fraud and money laundering case against former National Youth Development Agency head Andile Lungisa is expected to continue.

The fraud and money laundering case against former National Youth Development Agency head Andile Lungisa is expected to continue in the Johannesburg Specialised Commercial Crime Court on Wednesday.

Lungisa, Thabo Shogolo, Xolisile Guquza, and Ursula Sali are accused of accepting and sharing among themselves R2.5 million paid by the arts and culture department for the Nelson Mandela Sports Day concert.

They allegedly promised that US singer R Kelly would perform at the concert, but he did not.

Lungisa and the others were arrested after handing themselves over to the Hawks earlier this month.

On October 4, Lungisa and Shogolo were granted bail of R10,000 each, Guquza was granted bail of R5000, and Sali was released on a warning.

Lungisa has since asked to be relieved of his political duties as an African National Congress Eastern Cape executive committee member while he deals with the charges against him.
