Pippie's new teeth and glasses

Johannesburg - The Hawks reportedly still believe there is evidence of irregularities in burn victim Pippie Kruger's foundation, which was established to assist other burn victims.

In August last year, the Hawks announced they were probing claims from an anonymous whistleblower that money was being misappropriated from the Pippie se Gesiggie fund to finance Pippie's mother's lifestyle. Anice Kruger denied the allegations.

The national director of public prosecutions decided not to lay criminal charges, but Beeld on Thursday quoted Hawks spokesperson Paul Ramaloko as saying the Hawks believe there is still a case to be made.

The Hawks will reportedly rework the allegations and resubmit them to the prosecuting authority.

Ramaloko would not elaborate on the specific allegations as the matter may still be heard in court, eNCA reported.

According to Beeld, benefactors have reportedly paid millions to the fund, which is controlled by the Kruger family. It has so far helped a 5-year-old fire victim, Celiwe Maseko, and built a rehabilitation centre.

A family spokesperson said the fund was still in the process of being audited, but preliminary findings showed no evidence of fraud or misappropriation.

Pippie was 2-years-old when she sustained third-degree burns at a braai on New Year's Eve in 2011. She later underwent pioneering skin graft surgery. She and her mother moved back to their Lephalale home at the end of last year, after spending more than a year in Johannesburg.
