Johannesburg - Two officials and a politician associated with the North West education department were arrested on charges of corruption and fraud on Tuesday, said police.

Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said the three were arrested simultaneously in their homes in Mahikeng, Zeerust and Klerksdorp at about 06:30.

They had been under investigation by the Hawks since May in connection with tender irregularities within the department.

Ngubani said the three were expected to appear in the Mahikeng Magistrate's Court on Tuesday or Wednesday.
