A former municipal manager and two company directors appeared in the Springbok magistrate's court this week facing charges of fraud involving a R79.9m tender.

Hawks spokesperson Nomthandazo Mnisi said a construction company was selected as a successful bidder by the Nama Khoi municipality in Springbok in the Northern Cape in 2013 to render a three-year paving service.

“It is alleged that the company did not meet the necessary requirements and the procurement process was allegedly flouted.”

The trio are expected to appear again in the same court on September 20.
