Tzaneen - Three people arrested for running a bogus further education and training nursing college appeared in the Tzaneen Magistrate's Court on Friday, Limpopo police said.
Thomas Murenga, 32, Chiedza Shiyeza, 34, and Behilda Nyazamba, 25, would remain in custody and appear again on March 22, said Brigadier Hangwane Mulaudzi.
They would face charges of fraud.
The three Zimbabwean nationals were arrested on Wednesday.
Police were searching for Nyazamba's husband, who was suspected of running bogus nursing colleges in Limpopo and Mpumalanga.
The alleged fraudsters were arrested when students at the college approached the department of higher education to enquire about the institution's legitimacy.
“The matter was referred to the Hawks for investigation. It was revealed that the college was not registered with the department of higher education,” said Mulaudzi. - Sapa
