The story: In a matter that's nearly 10 years in the making, corruption-accused former KwaZulu-Natal police commissioner Mmamonnye Ngobeni has appeared in the Durban Magistrate's Court in connection with allegations involving R47 million FIFA World Cup police accommodation tender fraud.

The details: Ngobeni together and a police officer, Ashwin Narainpershad, were on the other side of the law on Monday when they appeared before Magistrate Vanitha Armu. Ngobeni was granted R20 000 bail and Narainpershad was granted R10 000 bail.

The context: Their bail conditions prohibit them from leaving the province or country without informing the investigating officer and contacting witnesses directly or indirectly, and they have been ordered to hand over their passports to the investigating officer.
