Moshoeu’s ‘fraudulent’ business dealings in the spotlight.

Former Bafana Bafana midfielder John ‘Shoes’ Moshoeu allegedly used an unregistered company to secure government tenders worth millions of rands, reported The Citizen on Monday.

It is considered fraud to operate an unregistered company but the star midfielder won’t face any charges since he passed away in April after a battle with cancer.

The reports stated that the unregistered company, Shoes Moshoeu Holdings, was dubiously awarded tenders to build schools in Gauteng in a joint venture with a state entity, Independent Development Trust (IDT).

According to The Citizen, IDT’s media relations manager Thabisile Dlomo confirmed the tender transactions.

‘Yes, the IDT awarded a tender to Shoes Moshoeu Holdings Joint Venture. It was awarded three tenders to build three schools in Gauteng in January 2012,’ she said.
