Giyani - A Limpopo businessman accused of leaking the Mathematics II exam to matric pupils was granted R4 000 bail in the Giyani Magistrate’s Court on Thursday.

It was 52-year-old Tinyiko Khosa’s second attempt to get bail.

During his first bail application, the prosecution and police expressed fears that if Khosa was released on bail, he would interfere with the investigation.

Khosa, the owner of the New Era and Madzahisi independent colleges in Malamulele, was arrested after Hawks investigations linked him to the leaking of the exam paper.

On October 31, it emerged that the paper was distributed and shared among pupils at his two colleges.

The leak was initially uncovered in Giyani, about 40km from Khosa's colleges. Pupils at schools in the area allegedly confessed to accessing the paper before the exam was written.

The case against Khosa was postponed to December 19 for further investigations.

Meanwhile, the basic education department said it was reviewing Khosa's colleges.
