The matter was postponed to March 31.

Lungisa and his co-accused - his wife Ursula Sali, and Xolisile Guquza and Thabo Shogolo - face charges of fraud and money laundering.

The four allegedly accepted and shared among themselves R2.5 million paid by the arts and culture department for the Nelson Mandela Sports Day concert. They allegedly promised that US singer R Kelly would perform at the concert, but he did not.

Previously, Lungisa and Shogolo were granted bail of R10 000 each; Guquza was granted bail of R5 000; and, Sali was released on a warning.

They were arrested in October, after handing themselves in to the Hawks. - Sapa
