The money was transferred from the Guardian's Fund to several entities. The facility holds funds for the legally incapable, such as minors and others unable to manage their own finances. 

 

Hawks spokesperson Simphiwe Mhlongo says Nkosinathi Mtambo, Themba Nhleko and Phumlani Mhlongo are wanted on fraud charges.

Earlier this year, two people were arrested in the case on charges of fraud and money laundering. 

 

More than R8 million has since been recovered with the assistance of the Asset Forfeiture Unit.
