A couple, aged 33 and 44 was arrested for alleged fraud and corruption in Polokwane on Wednesday.
It is alleged that between 2016 and 2017, the husband who was employed at Helen Joseph Hospital in Johannesburg, approached family members and friends about business opportunities in the Gauteng Province.
He allegedly registered companies belonging to his friends and family on the provincial government supplier database. They started to receive payments without rendering any services.
The suspect would then travel from Gauteng to Limpopo to collect the money and transfer it to different accounts belonging to his wife.
The matter was reported to the Serious Corruption Investigation whom after conducting thorough investigations, arrested the couple.
Both suspects are expected to appear in the Sekhukhune Magistrate court on 06 November 2020.
