Pietermaritzburg - Fraud accused Jabulani Mabaso's former accomplice testified in the KwaZulu-Natal High Court in Pietermaritzburg on Tuesday.

Witness Gillian Broughton told the court she "should have done something about submitting false invoices", but had not.

Broughton said the contents of the false invoices were given to her by Mabaso, who demanded that they be submitted to the KwaZulu-Natal department of education.

Under cross-examination, she said Mabaso did not actually tell her to submit false invoices, but instructed her to follow the same procedure as she had previously done, and gave her the contents of the false invoices.

She said that Mabaso had known what she was doing.

Mabaso, who is out on bail of R1m, and his co-accused Indiza Infrastructure Solutions have pleaded not guilty to 19 charges involving hundreds of millions of rand.

Mabaso faces five counts of fraud, seven of forgery, and seven of uttering and corruption.

The indictment alleges that the department of education awarded Mabaso a tender to act as the sole service provider and to manage the procurement of stationery for the learner-teacher support programme.

The indictment alleges that the accused defrauded the department of over R197m by submitting false invoices.

The case is set to continue for a long time as hundreds of documents are to be submitted as evidence.
