MOUNTAIN Rise Police Station urgently appealed to members of the public to be on the lookout for Jamal Kanyoza [pictured right] who they believe can help them with a case they are currently investigating concerning theft under false pretences.

“The complainant said that on June 27 she received a payout after her employment was terminated. Thereafter, she said she went to Northdale to see her boyfriend [Kanyoza] and his brother, who she said is a traditional healer. “Once at the traditional healer’s house, the woman was told to place her money in a prayer room so that the ancestors could double her money,” said Captain Nqobile Gwala of the SAPS.

Gwala said that the complainant did as she was instructed and she was then asked to purchase alcohol from a nearby liquor store to celebrate.

“The woman then proceeded to the store with [Kanyoza] but, when she returned, she realised that the traditional healer had disappeared with all of her money,” said Gwala.

Gwala said that the complainant and Kanyoza then attempted to search for the traditional healer as well as her money however shortly after that the complainant realised that Kanyoza had disappeared as well. At that point the complainant realised that she had been scammed.

The complainant immediately called the police to inform them of the incident.

The public is asked to please contact the police at 08600 10111 or contact Detective Warrant Officer Sydney Reddy should they have any information.
