Mbombela - The R1bn fraud and corruption cases against Kaizer Chiefs soccer boss Bobby Motaung and his co-accused resumes in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court on Monday.

The court is expected to set a date for the case to go on trial in the high court.

The first case, involving R143m, implicates Motaung, his business partner Herbert Theledi, and former Lefika Emerging Equity CEO Chris Gribb.

The second relates to R920m, and involves Motaung, Theledi, Gribb, Gribb's former lawyer Michael Romanos, former Mbombela municipal manager Jacob Dladla, and former Ehlanzeni district municipality technical services manager Tebogo Kubeka.

The two cases involve charges related to the construction of the Mbombela Stadium for the 2010 Fifa Soccer World Cup. 

The men have not been asked to plead yet.

Also appearing in the Nelspruit courts this week is Mpumalanga Hawks boss Major General Simon Mapiane, who is leading the investigation against Motaung and his co-accused.

Mapiane was arrested in May after being accused of submitting fraudulent travel claims. He has not been asked to plead and is out on R1 000 bail pending his next appearance on 26 June.
