"The head of corporate administrations Hendrick Barnard, previous CFO Nigel Delo, metropolitan chief Morne Hoogbaard, and HR supervisor McGrandile Maker showed up in the Ladismith officer's court and were delivered on bail," said Hawks representative Col Katlego Mogale. 

Three of the charged were captured on Thursday and the metropolitan chief later gave himself over to the Hawks. 

"It is asserted they duped the district of more than R338m by improving themselves through fake arrangements in senior positions and acting remittances, and the organization claimed by one of them benefited while the proprietor was working for the region," said Mogale. 

The blamed were delivered on bail for R15,000 each.
