Durban - The Ingwe local municipality's former mayor, former municipal manager and two ward councillors have been arrested on corruption charges.

The KwaZulu-Natal officials appeared in court last Tuesday said Hawks spokesperson Captain Simphiwe Mhlongo.

Mhlongo said members of the Hawks Anti-Corruption Task Team arrested Bongekile Dlamini and Zamambo Mkhize who were allegedly receiving illegal social grants  from Sassa. Almost R35 000 was lost by Sassa.

The two men appeared in the Durban Specialised Commercial Crime Court last Tuesday. They were granted  bail of R2 000 each. The case was postponed to June.

Meanwhile, the former mayor, Nomagugu Luzulane and former municipality manager, Nthabiseng Brown appeared in the Durban Specialised Commercial Crime Court on Friday.

They were charged for fraud and corruption relating to the misuse of municipality funds at Ingwe Local Municipality.

Brown was also charged for fraud after she allegedly submitted a false qualification, Mhlongo said. The case was postponed to June 9.
