KWAZULU-NATAL – Mzwandile Ntombela (51) briefly appeared in the Durban Magistrates' Court yesterday following his arrest by the Durban based Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team. He was charged for 36 counts of theft from trust account.  

It is alleged that Ntombela was a practicing attorney and he received R362 000 from the Road Accident Fund on behalf of his clients. Ntombela allegedly used the funds for personal gain.

He was granted a R10 000 bail and the case was postponed to 4 October 2021.
