Johannesburg - The trial of three men accused of corruption in the building of the Mbombela Stadium, in Mpumalanga, was postponed by the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court on Monday.

"It was postponed for further particulars and further discovery," said court official Eric Mashego, He said they would be back in court on 29 November.

Kaizer Chiefs' manager Bobby Motaung, his business partner at Lefika Emerging Equity Herbert Theledi, and their co-accused Chris Gribb face charges of forgery and fraud.

Former Mbombela municipal manager Jacob Dladla appeared separately in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court after his arrest on Sunday.

He was released on R15 000 bail and would appear in court with the others on 29 November.

Dladla was municipal manager when Motaung's company was awarded the contract to build the R1.2bn stadium for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

Motaung and his co-accused allegedly forged SA Revenue Service documents to get the contract to build the stadium.

At their last appearances, Motaung and Theledi were granted bail of R50 000 each. Gribb was released on R20 000 bail.

The court prohibited them from having contact with any Mbombela municipality employees while out on bail. They were also ordered not to come within 500m of the Mbombela municipal offices.

At their last court appearance, more than 100 protesters displayed posters reading: "Who killed Jimmy", "What happened to Jimmy" and "Stop Corruption".

Some protesters wore T-shirts with the face of Mbombela municipal speaker Jimmy Mohlala, who was shot dead in January 2009 after blowing the whistle on companies and individuals he claimed were involved in tender corruption.
