The trial of a Vaal couple who allegedly tried to dupe the Presidency into footing the bill for their plush wedding will now take place next year.

Benjamin Molotsane, 29, and his wife Moleboheng Molotsane, 26, appeared briefly in the Vereeniging regional court yesterday where magistrate David Mey postponed their fraud case to January 30.

The couple also allegedly defrauded a Vaal hotel and car hire company using the Presidency's letterheads.

Moleboheng Molotsane allegedly stole the letterheads while working in the country's highest office.

The Molotsanes allegedly duped the companies into believing that their bill, which amounted to about R90000, would be settled by President Thabo Mbeki's office.

While a secretary in the Presidency, Moleboheng also allegedly stole a computer which was later recovered by the police in Mpumalanga after she had sold it to an appliance store in Vereeniging. She has said he intended ending the marriage.

Moleboheng has appointed her own lawyer, Ben Botes, while her husband is represented by Johannes Makhae.

She is out on R3500 bail under 24-hour house arrest and can only leave her house on Sundays, while her husband is out on a warning.

However, her bail conditions were relaxed after she informed the court that she wanted to pursue a career in acting.
