MPUMALANGA – Rhodes Hattingh (39)
the manager of Kyalami Lodge in Nelspruit appeared before the Nelspruit Magistrate Court on Tuesday morning after he was arrested by members of the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team in Mpumalanga for fraud and theft.
It is alleged that in January 2012 the accused was appointed as a general manager of Kyalami lodge where he issued false invoices to the employer on behalf of suppliers for services that were never rendered. Hattingh then transferred the ill-gotten money into his personal bank account.
Following Hawks’ investigation Hattingh was served with court summons on 24 July 2020, culminating in his recent court appearance. The case has been postponed to 18 September 2020.
