Former employee found guilty of theft

2016-11-23 06:00

Tebogo Angela Manyane (30), a former employee of the Department of Justice, has been found guilty by the Hartswater Magistrate’s Court of theft exceeding a total of R100 000.

Manyane worked at a cash hall, receiving money from members of the public who made payments for admission of guilt fines.

People would, under normal circumstances, be given proof of payment after these payments were made.

However, according to Capt. Philani Nkwalase of the Hawks, transactions would later be reversed on the system as if no payments had been made and this practice carried on undetected from November 2007 until July 2009.

There were no complaints from the public, as they were issued with proof of payment and were not aware that their fines remained unsettled.

The Hartswater Regional Court sentenced Manyane to six years imprisonment, suspended for five years, on condition that she is not convicted of similar offences during this period.
