Two men were arrested on Wednesday for fraud relating to the building of the Mbombela stadium in Mpumalanga, the Hawks said.

“We have arrested two men, one in Naturena and one in Cape Town. We are looking for the third suspect,” said spokesman Colonel McIntosh Polela.

He said the men were arrested on allegations that they forged SA Revenue Services (Sars) documents to obtain a contract to build the Mbombela stadium, a match venue for the 2010 Soccer World Cup.

He could not confirm rumours that a senior Kaizer Chiefs official was among those arrested.

Kaizer Chiefs said none of its workers had been arrested.

“I have consulted with all principals at Kaizer Chiefs. We do not have any officials arrested. As of now [2.20pm] there are no indications of any arrests at the village,” spokesman Vina Maphosa said.
