    ROCKDALE MIDDELBURG RDP HOUSES FRAUD – 1 SUSPECT SOUGHT

    The Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation in Mpumalanga appeals to the public to help in locating 40 year-old S’fiso Johannes Khumalo whom is believed can assist in an ongoing investigation into Rockdale Reconstruction and Development Programme (RDP) houses fraud case.

    It is alleged that in October 2018, Sylvia Nyandeni (43), 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 destitute applicants.

    The defrauded victims were given a bank account of Khumalo to deposit the funds which amounted to just over R700 000. The pair reportedly shared the proceeds afterwards.

    Nyandeni and Khumalo were summoned to appear before the Middelburg Magistrate’s Court on 24 July 2020.

    However, only Nyandeni managed to honour the court appearance whilst 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.

    The court consequently issued a warrant of arrest against Khumalo.
