Johannesburg - The trial of four people accused of swindling Mahikeng business people has been postponed until Tuesday by the Mmabatho Magistrate's Court, in the North West, a court official said.

The court did not have enough time to hear the case on Monday, according to the official.

The three men and a woman were allegedly members of a scheme that defrauded people in the building construction industry by promising them lucrative tenders.

A woman tipped off police on Friday, after being approached by the group.

They asked her for R250 000, purportedly in return for awarding her a R16.5m tender for the construction of toilets in the Mahikeng municipality.

The group operated in the Ngaka-Modiri Molema, Ratlou and Tswaing municipalities.

Two of them were arrested on Friday, and the other two were arrested on Saturday.
