It is alleged that in September 2018, the accused who was employed by the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform at Mpumalanga Provincial Government as project manager, but now employed in Polokwane at the Department of Agriculture, colluded with Mr Ngwenyama, the sole director of Frugasmart CC company over the land claim of Brown community, Makhatini community and Tlharesamadi community.

It is further alleged that the above-mentioned communities submitted applications for the land claim and it was approved by the minister but instead of the communities being informed about the approval, Golele colluded with Ngwenyama to submit fraudulent invoices on behalf of the communities as if he rendered services for them, whereas the services were never rendered.
