Zethu Mudolo and Ntlokwana are out on bail, while Willah Mudolo was still in custody, pending his bail application.

Mudolo is a Zambian national. He have put his R23m to R25m Sandhurst property as his security. 

“The bond registered over the property for R10m has been paid off and I intend to pledge the premises as security for my bail,” he told the court. 

Col Daniel Marais from the Hawks on Monday told the Pretoria magistrate's court that Mudolo is flight risk.

Marais allegedly accuse Mudolo of trying to flee to Dubai 3 times September 21, October 13 and October 16. Marais said that each time Mudolo tried to leave, he received an alert on his cellphone about an airport check-in. Marais said, he alerted Mudolo’s lawyer every time he received a message about him checking in the airport. Marais said they arrested him on the 7th of October at the airport when attempted to flee for the 3rd time. 

 Marais claims that Mudolo got a powerful connection in the UK and his home country in Zambia, and he wants to be the next president of Zambia. The Hawks spoke out against granting him a bail.
