The trial of two men accused of defrauding Limpopo government departments of millions of rands has been postponed to 10 November in the Giyani Specialised Commercial Crimes Court. Bank employee Fhatuwani Mudzanani and his co-accused Dzulani Mashau, allegedly transferred R25 million from two departments into their personal accounts.

The money was allegedly transferred at a bank in Elim near Louis Trichardt, where Mudzanani was employed. The Hawks arrested the two last year. NPA’s Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi says they’re ready for the trial.

“The accused for R25 million ABSA fraud Fhatuwani Mudzanani and Dzulani Mashau appeared at the Giyani Specialised Commercial Court previously. The matter was postponed for Mudzanani to be afforded a legal representative, both the accused have attorneys. The matter has been set down for trial on 10 November 2021,”  Malabi-Dzhangi explains.
