The details of the case against him have yet to be made public.
The Hawks, in their statement, was playing mum on Motaung: All they would say was that two men were arrested today for alleged fraud relating to the building of the Mbombela Stadium in Mpumalanga.
“We have arrested two men, one in Naturena and one in Cape Town.
“We are looking for the third suspect,” Sapa quoted Hawks spokesman Colonel McIntosh Polela as saying.
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.
