Help replace pensioner’s stolen stamps

2018-03-13 06:00

A local commissioner of oaths is asking for assistance in replacing lost equipment needed to continue his voluntary work.

Mervyn Cupido is a commissioner of oaths and had his bag stolen from his home on Friday 2 March. With it he lost all his marriage books, certified stamps and important documents. The family is not sure who the culprit is. Cupido is asking for assistance in funding the replacement of the equipment.

The case has been reported to police as per instruction from Home Affairs but Cupido, a pensioner, does not have the means to replace the stamps. The price for a certified stamp is around R600 per stamp.

Cupido volunteers at the Tafelsig and Woodlands Sassa centres to assist the community and is unable to perform any of his commissioner duties without the certified stamps or the ink and paper.

V Anyone who is able to assist with donations can contact Cupido on 074 341 7576.
