Mqwathi in custody

The municipal manager of the Moqhaka Municipality was taken into custody after he was a fugitive for more than a week.

Simon Moqwathi (57) who serves as the municipal manager of the Moqhaka Municipality, has handed himself over to the police with the support of his lawyer in Kroonstad.

The Hawks have been looking for Moqwathi with regard to suspected fraudulent tender processes of at least R35 million.

Capt. Ramovah Lloyd, national spokesman for the Hawks, confirmed that the Hawks arrested Moqwathi in Kroonstad for fraud and corruption.

This came after a warrant was issued for his arrest on Wednesday, 22 May, after he did not hand himself over to police with his two co-accused.

While fleeing, Mqwathi posted a video on social media saying he was doing well and that he is “running with the horses and being very happy at the moment”.

One rumor alleged that he had flown to Dubai via Kenya.

According to another rumor he was hiding some­where in Sandton.

Mqwathi was due to appear in the Kroonstad Magistrate’s Court on Monday (03/06) for his bail application.
