Former Hantam Municipal Manager arrested on fraud allegations

Former Hantam Municipality Manager, aged 63, who is currently the Municipal Manager at Nama Khoi Municipality, Springbok, is expected to make a brief appearance before Calvinia Magistrates’ Court today on charges of fraud and contravention of Municipal Finance Management Act 56 of 2003.

This follows his arrest earlier today by the Hawks Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team in Springbok.

It is alleged that between 2019 and 2020, the suspect whilst being a Municipal Manager at Hantam Municipality, received a monthly subsidy for two official cell phones whereas the municipality was also paying for the billing to the service provider which was contrary to the package he had with the municipality. Due to this, the municipality suffered an actual prejudice of R33 470.39.

In another unrelated matter, the suspect is alleged to have ordered two loads of gravel belonging to the municipality to be delivered to his residence for personal benefit. The actual prejudice suffered by the municipality with this regard is R1003 00.
