Fraud: Former NFP head held again

2012-08-10 10:37

Johannesburg - Expelled former head of the National Freedom Party, Mulalo Peggy Mokoena was arrested by the Hawks at her luxury home on Wednesday, according to a report.

Mokoena allegedly swindled a local farmer out of thousands of rands, the Beeld reported on Friday.

In September 2011, she was released on bail of R2000 after being charged with alleged theft and fraud. That case is due to be heard on 13 August in the Polokwane magistrate's court.

Limpopo's provincial police spokesperson Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi told the newspaper that two other people, Mokoena's lawyer and a business partner, were also taken into custody.

The lawyer allegedly approached a farmer with a proposal to take out a loan with Mokoena's money lending scheme.

The farmer paid Mokoena R7100 in order to secure a loan of R3.8m, but never heard from Mokoena again.

Mulaudzi said Mokoena, 51, had also allegedly recently bought three cars from a local dealership with fraudulent documents.

    It's the same everyday. Stealing and more stealing. The little thieves are all going to prison and the big thieves are free and stealing even more. With this lot on power things will never change.
