Brian Hlongwa, the former Gauteng Health MEC and African National Congress (ANC) Chief Whip, is set to return to court on Friday. Following charges of a multi-million rand tender fraud case, Hlongwa was given R20,000 bail.
Joeline Davids-Hlongwa, his wife, and six others had previously been in court with him. Allegations against them include fraud, corruption, money laundering, and racketeering.
For suspected crimes committed between 2006 and 2010, they have been charged under the Prevention of Organized Crime Act.
The matter was postponed for further investigation.
