The Hawks say service providers were allegedly paid some R208-million, but the municipality did not receive anything in return.

Gumede and two co-accused were granted R50,000 bail a short while ago.

They face the same charges as nine other suspects, including senior municipal officials, who were arrested two weeks ago.

A media scrum developed after proceedings when reporters tried to photograph Gumede leaving the venue.

The mayor's supporters used their jackets to try and shield her from the cameras.


This is a developing story.
