The case involving an executive director at listed ICT group, Pinnacle Holdings, has been postponed until July.
The South African Police Service (SAPS) announced on 24 March that Takalani Tshivhase had been arrested on 5 March 2014 on charges of bribery.

In response to the allegations, Pinnacle said that “Mr Tshivhase denies all allegations of attempted bribery, and will defend the charges.”

“Mr Tshivhase appeared in court this morning, 24 April 2014, where the matter was postponed until the 2nd July 2014.
“The company will review the matter as further information becomes available and will inform shareholders accordingly.”
