FortHareNews24 reports that on Thursday, the Dimbaza Magistrate’s Court in the Eastern Cape granted bail of R50,000 each to 10 of the accused in the University of Fort Hare (UFH) fraud and corruption case.

Two of the accused, namely Terrence Joubert of Tarlec Security Solutions and Anwar Khan of Pentagon Group, were remanded in custody until Friday, when the State will apparently oppose their bail applications. Khan is former bodyguard of slain rapper AKA. Those granted bail are: Dr Paul Tladi; his wife Lucrecia Davids; Anna Smith; Mbulelo Gingcana; Louis Mawila; Nozuko Mabombo; Thamsanqa Sonjica, and service providers Bradley Conradie, Craig Retief and Nthabiseng Makhoba. Bail conditions are that the accused hand over their passports to the investigating officer and report to their nearest police stations every Wednesday. The accused are among 14 people who were arrested over the Easter weekend. They are accused of defrauding the university of R171 million. Two of them, namely Sarah Burger and Gosain Wayne van Haar, were released on bail of R50,000 each last week. Accused number one Isaac Plaatjies abandoned his bail bid last week. The accused will be back in court on 9 May.
