The first suspect linked to the Covid-19 fraud scandal, Phathilizwi Training Institute owner Pumza Gambula, was bust on 22 October adn was granted R20 000 bail.

According to the Hawks’ investigations, Gwadiso signed for payments, confirming that the Phathilizwi door-to-door campaigns took place.

Gambula allegedly submitted fraudulent documents claiming she held awareness campaigns for prevention and containment of the Covid-19 pandemic in the rural communities of Port St Johns, King Sabatha Dalindyebo and Mhlonto local municipalities, which the Hawks said never took place.

The two will appear in court on 25 January.
