Cape Town - The owner of a Cape Town real estate agency says he was shocked to discover that millions have "disappeared" from his trust account.
 
"I do not know what happened to the money, but I am going to get to the bottom of this," Beyers Swanepoel Trollip, principal of Beyers Realty Group, told Fin24.

Trollip claims he has laid charges against his financial team at the SA Police Service and also "reported everything" to the Estate Agency Affairs Board (EAAB).

In a bid to allay clients' fears Trollip said: "Basically I am turning to the media now in order to assure my clients and the public at large that I am not running away. I did nothing wrong and the police are investigating the case."
