A tweet from his son confirms the news. Not quite sure as to the details of why he was released early, etc.

He was involved in the Black Empowerment development in So Africa. That government back program has seen a lot of fraud. He was accused of using $120,000 of the program's funds. It does seem odd to me though.

It's too big a sum to think that he was gradually skimming money, and too small a sum for him to have planned that to be his final amount basically.
