More arrests are anticipated in the complex fraudulent COVID-19 Temporary Employee Relief Scheme( TERS ) claim, according to the Hawks in Durban.

This occurred after a second woman connected to the case was apprehended by the Hawks.

On Thursday, Nokuthula Ntuli made an appearance before the Durban Specialized Commercial Crime Court.

Between November 2020 and February 2021, the 40-year-old is said to have received more than 500,000 rands from Sandy and Sissy.

The Hawks claim that Nana Mbutho-Mkhize, the company’s director, shared the funds with her accomplices and claimed COVID-19 TERS on behalf of various businesses.

Simphiwe Mhlongo, a spokesman for the Hawks:

Ntuli was released on R20,000 bail after making a brief appearance in the Durban Specialized Commercial Crime Court. On November 17, 2023, she will reappear in the same court as Nana [ Mbutho-Mkhize ]. There will likely be more arrests.
