Johannesburg - Kaizer Chiefs football manager, Bobby Motaung, is expected to appear in the Nelspruit Magistrates Court on Monday October 15.

The three men have been accused of corruption in the building of the Mbombela Stadium, in Nelspruit, and face charges of forgery and fraud. Motaung’s company, Lefika Emerging Equity, landed the contract to build the R1.2 billion stadium prior to the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
The trio were arrested in August, however were subsequently released on bail after appearing in the Nelspruit Magistrates Court. Motaung and his business partner, Theledi, were released on R50 000 bail each, while former Lefika chief executive, Gribb, got out on R20 000 bail.
Following the bail, the trio were prohibited of having any sort of contact with any of the Mbombela municipality employees and ordered to not come within 500m of the Mbombela municipal offices.
In addition, it has been reported that a warrant of arrest has been issued against former Mbombela municipal manager, Jacob Dladla, in connection with the corruption surrounding the construction of the Mpumalanga-based stadium.
