Suspects Zine Joy Gxulu (35) and Phumeza Pindo (38) were found guilty and sentenced to 18 years' imprisonment by the Komani Magistrate's Court on October 1. 

Police spokesperson Captain Namhla Mdleleni said during 2019 the fraud victim lost her cell phone while she was traveling in a taxi and a few days later the victim went to draw a bank statement when she discovered fraudulent transactions done on her bank account. 

"A case of fraud was opened and assigned to Warrant Officer Marriette Olivier," said Mdleleni. 

"During April this year two suspects were arrested in the Western Cape." 

Mdleleni said both pleaded guilty for fraud and sentenced to 18 years' imprisonment.
