JOHANNESBURG - The NPA has decided to charge On Point Engineering and its three directors with tender fraud.

The Prosecuting Authority alleges that Lesiba Gwangwa, Kagiso Dichabe and Thomas Rasetlhaba made misrepresentations to the Limpopo Transport Department.

Gwangwa faces further charges for claiming that his company wasn't paid for some of the work done for the department, when in fact it had received over R8-million.

EFF leader Julius Malema, whose Ratanang Family Trust was once linked to On Point Engineering, will not be charged for now.

The NPA says it has opened a separate investigation into how Malema managed the trust.
