Man wanted for Rockdale RDP fraud case

A 40-year-old S’fiso Johannes Khumalo is sought by the Mpumalanga Hawks for a fraud case.

According to the Hawks, it is believed he can assist in investigation into Rockdale Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP) houses fraud case. The Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation said it is alleged that in October 2018, Sylvia Nyandeni, an employee of Steve Tshwete Municipality allegedly colluded with Khumalo to defraud applicants of RDP houses in Middelburg. Nyandeni misrepresented herself as having the authority to receive money from the applicants. The victims were given Khumalo’s bank account to deposit the funds which amounted to over R700 000.

“The pair reportedly shared the proceeds afterwards. Nyandeni and Khumalo were summoned to appear before the Middelburg Magistrate’s Court on July 24, however, only Nyandeni managed to honour the court appearance while Khumalo sent a sick note stating he was not feeling well. The court ordered that Khumalo appear alongside Nyandeni on the follow-up date which was scheduled for 20 August 2020, he was informed accordingly but he once again absconded,” said Hawaks spokesperson, Dineo Sekgotodi.

The court has issued a warrant of arrest against Khumalo. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact the investigating officer in the case, Sergeant Amos Mahlangu on 071 481 3069 or contact Crime stop 0860 010111 or by sending a tip off via MySAPSApp. All information received will be treated with the strictest confidence.
