Two Limpopo fraudsters get bail
Johannesburg - Two men accused of being part of a fraud syndicate have been granted R2 000 bail each by the Polokwane Magistrate's Court, Limpopo police said on Sunday.
The fraud case against Happy Mathye, 35, and Hendrik Mabunda, 31, was postponed on Friday to August 18 for further investigation, Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said in a statement.
The two men were arrested on Wednesday on 24 counts of fraud.
Mulaudzi said they allegedly used fraudulent order forms from Limpopo's department of arts and culture and the Greater Sekhukhune municipality to steal from furniture and retail shops in Limpopo, Gauteng and Mpumalanga.
He said they were also being investigated for attempting to cash in on a R15 million tax rebate to the Greater Sekhukhune municipality by opening a false municipal account.
