Gugulethu Tony Ngoma (23), was convicted for fraud and sentenced by the Mokopane Regional Court on Wednesday, 28 August 2019.
Ngoma bought a vehicle worth R300 000-00 at a vehicle dealership in Polokwane on 3 April 2019, using what the Hawks’ investigation ultimately proved to have utilised a fraudulent payslip and bank statement to purchase the car.
The accused was traced and arrested by the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team at Kwaggafontein Court in Mpumalanga where he was appearing for another case. The fraudulently obtained motor vehicle has already been recovered.
Ngoma has been sentenced to six years imprisonment of which two years imprisonment is wholly suspended for five years on condition that he is not found guilty of fraud and theft during a period of the suspension.
