By Thys Khiba – Free State former Acting Municipal Manager of Mafube Local Municipality, Nkabi Andrew Hlubi is released on R3000 bail and the matter was postponed to 3 May 2023 for further investigation.

This comes after Hlubi appeared at the Bethlehem Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Monday, 17 April 2023 for charges of corruption and fraud.

The 45-year-old man was arrested by the Hawks’ Serious Corruption Investigation team based in Bethlehem on Monday morning.

It is alleged that in February 2017, Hlubi verbally instructed the former chief financial officer not to bank the daily cash received at the municipality but rather utilize it on daily municipal operations.

The former CFO requested Hlubi to issue the instruction in writing but he refused and said that he will take accountability should a query arise from the auditors. A total amount of R116 000 was queried and could not be accounted for,” said Hawks spokesperson Warrant Officer Fikiswa Matoti.
