The fraud case of the wife of a senior SA National Defence Force (SANDF) general has been postponed for trial.

Nombasa Ntsondwa-Ndhlovu briefly appeared in the Specialised Commercial Crimes Court in Pretoria on Monday.

The charges she faces relate to tenders she scored from the SANDF.

One was a R24-million tender to transport SANDF equipment from African countries to South Africa, News24 previously reported. It is alleged that she provided false information and documents as part of the tender process.

The second tender, also for the transport of SANDF equipment to South Africa, was valued at about R103 million.

The contract was cancelled when the soldiers were recalled from their various posts in other countries. However, it's alleged that Ntsondwa-Ndhlovu still claimed R30 million on the basis that she incurred expenses before it was cancelled.

The case was postponed to 22 and 23 July.
