R200 for hand-written liquor licence

2012-06-01 20:21

Johannesburg - Two people accused of fraudulently issuing a liquor licence have appeared in the Lehurutshe Magistrate's Court, in Lerato, North West police say.

Penny Ndona, 44, and Petrus Molatlhegi, 47, both employees of the Liquor Board, were each granted bail of R1 000 and the case was postponed until July 2, said spokesperson Kelebogile Moiloa on Friday.

She said they allegedly issued a fake, hand-written liquor licence to a Sandton tavern.

"The licence number they used belonged to a Barcelos restaurant, in Rustenburg."

Moiloa said Ndona, who was an employee of the Liquor Board in Mafikeng, allegedly issued a cash receipt of R200 for the fake licence.

Molatlhegi was a consultant at the Liquor Board.

She said the licence was issued without a police inspection or a recommendation.

      @jam I spoke out against rampant government corruption. And yesterday I paid my employees their salaries. What did you do?

      Jan - 2012-06-02 10:10

      Oh you paid your employees their salaries? Well done and if you didnt pay them what would have happened? You're not doing anyone a favour. Your attitude stinks.

    Licences were cheap until they got caught, they should've charged more while they can!

    It's hard not mentioning race when all you hear everyday is "whites", "Europeans", "foreigners".....

      Jan - 2012-06-02 10:10

      Where are you hearing these things? I certainly do not hear those words anymore than I hear the K word or the B word.

  • Michael Patron - 2012-06-02 00:31

    Oh, sorry Jan I forgot. You didn't mention those words on your forbidden list

    I guess that it must be a race to see who gets left with the crumbs when everything else has been stolen or broken. Still, maybe it will mean more and more contract tenders to rebuild infrastructure .....and if it goes the way of the rest of Africa lots of high salaried foreign temporary consultants to sort out the mess.(see toll system)
