The suspended manager of Madibeng Municipality, in the North West, will appear in court in Orkney for alleged corruption involving a R100 million tender, an official said. Co-operative governance spokesman Vuyelwa Qinga-Vika said on Tuesday that the manager was expected to bring a bail application.
He was arrested towards the end of 2010 for the alleged tender fraud.
"An extensive audit conducted on capital expenditure projects in the municipality revealed financial mismanagement of project funds in excess of R100 million," said Qinga-Vika.
The audit had also probed the municipal infrastructure grant and department of water affairs projects.
