The fraud, corruption and forgery charges against Kaizer Chiefs football manager Bobby Motaung and his two co-accused has been dropped.
SABC News stated that Magistrate Roelf Smith struck the case off the roll at the Nelspruit Regional Court due to seeing no progress in the matter.
The Amakhosi manager was arrested back in August 2012 by the Hawks over alleged tender irregularities in regard to the construction of the Mbombela Stadium for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
Motaung's business partner Herbert Theledi and Chris Grib was also charged with fraud and corruption, while Motaung had attempted to have the charges struck from the roll back in April, after the case had suffered numerous delays.
The SABC stated that the court had two conflicting letters with instructions as to where the case would be heard, which Smith referenced in justifying the decision.
There was a second charge which involved the trio as well as Grib’s former lawyer Michael Romanos, Jacob Dladla (the former Mbombela municipal manager) and former Ehlanzeni district municipality technical services manager Tebogo Kubeka - but it has not been revealed if these charges were also dropped.
