Motaung arrested by Hawks
Cape Town - Two men were arrested on Wednesday for fraud relating to the building of the Mbombela stadium in Mpumalanga, the Hawks said.
"We have arrested two men, one in Naturena and one in Cape Town. We are looking for the third suspect," said spokesperson Colonel McIntosh Polela.
He said the men were arrested on allegations that they forged SA Revenue Services (SARS) documents to obtain a contract to build the Mbombela stadium, a match venue for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.
Kaizer Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung has been widely reported to be one of the men arrested.
However, Chiefs disputed Motaung's arrest, saying none of their workers had been arrested.
"I have consulted with all principals at Kaizer Chiefs. We do not have any officials arrested. As of now (14:20) there are no indications of any arrests at the village," spokesperson Vina Maphosa said.
