The charges are linked to alleged dodgy land deals to the value of over R120-million.

The state requested more time to analyse and finalise the docket. 

Bongo said the delays are a cause for concern.

"These things happened 11 years ago, so the state has been busy for the past 11 years investigating and they are not finishing their investigation. It is a cause for concern. I think it's abusing our rights.

"They should have done this analysis in the 11 years but they are deciding to waste our time, call us again on the 4 May but we are going to comply because we respect the rule of law," he said.

Bongo reiterated claims outside the Nelspruit magistrate's court that the charges are a malicious campaign against him by "dark forces".
