A former Member of Parliament was among those arrested over the weekend in relation to a R4.8 million theft case involving the Limpopo Makgatho Community Property Association, the Hawks said on Sunday.
Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke said the former MP was arrested at his home in Kanana Village on Sunday morning.
His identity has not been revealed as he has yet to appear in court.
On Friday, a 53-year-old senior official from Molemole Local Municipality was arrested by the Serious Commercial Crime Investigation Unit.
This was followed by the arrest of a 70-year-old former chairperson of the property association at his home in Ga Makgatho village on Friday evening.
A 51-year-old bank employee handed himself over to the team in Polokwane on Saturday.
"The Hawks received a tip-off in 2018 about theft of money at Makgatho Community Property Association by some of the committee members," said Maluleke.
"It is alleged that, between 2015 and 2018, the suspects allegedly connived and awarded a farming tender to a company linked to the wife of the senior municipal official without following due processes."
They were expected to appear in the Polokwane Magistrate's Court on Monday.
