Nelspruit - An Mpumalanga health department director was acquitted on Friday of fraud charges involving nearly R300 000.
A Sapa correspondent reported that Maxwell Sithole had been accused of fraud and money-laundering when he appeared in the Nelspruit Regional Court on Friday.
He was arrested at his office at the provincial government headquarters in Mbombela on August 7 last year.
He allegedly instructed junior officials to fraudulently issue a tender to Donni G Trading CC - a company belonging to a junior official’s girlfriend.
Magistrate Shirley Msibi said there was no evidence against Sithole.
Sithole was out on R5000 bail. - Sapa
