Three members of the same family are accused of defrauding Fort Hare University in the Eastern Cape of R13.9 million.

Vuyokazi Rejoice Qusheka, 35, Yolisa Qusheka-Songca, 43, Walter Qusheka, 49, and Yolisa Qusheka-Songca, 43, appeared at the East London magistrate’s court on Friday.

Qusheka-Songca is the sole signatory of Qush Cleaning and Garden Services, according to Hawks spokesperson Capt Yolisa Mgolodela. Qush Cleaning and Garden Services was awarded a cleaning contract at the university in 2013.

Walter is in charge of the company’s activities, according to Mgolodela, while Vuyokazi is an employee.

The university allegedly paid Qush R750,000 per month for “specific” cleaning services, according to her. Additional services were claimed individually by the company.

“Between August 12 2016 and March 26 2018, the company is alleged to have submitted quotations and invoices to the university for such additional services. The additional services were allegedly either procured in a fraudulent manner or never rendered at all.

“Quotations submitted are reported to have been duly approved by an employee at the university. The company is reported to have been paid more than R13.9m for additional services.

“It is further alleged that during the said period more than R4.1m was paid by the company to bank accounts designated by an employee at Fort Hare,” said Mgolodela.

Walter and Qusheka-Songca were released on R5,000 bail. Vuyokazi was given a warning before being released.

The case has been adjourned until April 14.
