Sowetan add that Mudolo was refused bail last December after being identified as a flight danger. Ntlokwana and his wife are free on R100,000 and R20,000 bail, respectively. The trio, along with Bushiri and his wife Mary, are accused of defrauding, stealing, and laundering more than R100 million through an alleged investment scheme run by Mudolo and his wife through a company operated by Mudolo and his wife.


Aside from the new bail application, Ngwema stated that the case has been rescheduled for June 22 to allow for further investigation.
