Nelspruit - A third man accused of corruption in the building of Mbombela Stadium appeared in the Nelspruit Magistrate's Court on Friday.

Chris Gribb was granted R20,000 bail, said Hawks spokesman McIntosh Polela.

Gribb would be back in court on October 15 with co-accused Herbert Theledi and Kaizer Chiefs manager Bobby Motaung.

Gribb handed himself to police in Cape Town on Wednesday night.

The trio allegedly forged SA Revenue Service documents to get a contract to build the Mbombela stadium for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

Motaung and Theledi were each granted R50 000 bail on Thursday.

Both men are directors at Lefika Emerging Equity.

The court prohibited the two men from having contact with any Mbombela municipality employees while out on bail.

They also may not come within 500m of the Mbombela municipal offices. The Hawks arrested them on Wednesday. - Sapa
