Bernard Habana, the father of a former Springbok star, is allegedly in trouble with the law, again. According to the Gauteng police, he was arrested and appeared in court on the same day.
BERNARD HABANA ARRESTED FOR FRAUD
South African Police Service (SAPS) spokesperson Colonel Dimaketso Sello confirmed to The South African that Habana Senior was arrested on Monday, 30 May.
He appeared before the Randburg Magistrate’s Court on a charge of fraud on the same day.
In 2018, Bernard and mining mogul Atang Sesegolo Makgekgenene were accused of stealing more than R1 million from the director of Kwanza General Trading, Nancy Karimi.
At the time, Habana told Sunday World that the matter had nothing to do with him.
According to City Press, Bryan Habana fired his father as his business manager in 2010 because he was stealing from him.
In 2013, it was revealed, in an affidavit by Bryan’s mother Faith, that the rugby legend had not spoken to his father in more than three years – at the time.
Bernard Habana was reportedly granted R1000 bail by the Randburg Court and the matter was postponed.
The South African reached out to The National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) for comment. It will be added once received.
