Cape Town - Two siblings who allegedly siphoned around R3m from the City of Cape Town, appeared in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court on Wednesday, the Hawks said.

Rughshana Darries, 38, and her brother Kiaamdien, 39, were arrested last week on charges of fraud, uttering, and theft, allegedly committed between 2008 and 2010, Western Cape spokesperson Captain Lloyd Ramovha said.

They had carried out maintenance work for the City, allegedly without a valid tax clearance certificate.

"Alleged shoddy workmanship" raised the ire of the City, leading to a probe of their company’s credentials.

They are expected back in court on November 30.
