EASTERN CAPE – Zamile Nongogo (52), appeared in East London Magistrate’s Court on Friday facing a charge of fraud.
Nongogo was arrested in the early hours on Friday morning, prior to his court appearance, following the probe by the Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation team.
The Hawks preliminary investigation revealed that in March 2013, Nongogo allegedly aided undeserving vehicle finance applicants by facilitating and creating false pay slips for the applicants applying to purchase vehicles.
It is further alleged that these supporting documents were submitted at a financial institution in East London. Subsequently, a vehicle worth over R600 000-00 was approved and successfully purchased after these documents were verified telephonically with the alleged employers.
Nongogo remains in custody and is expected to appear again in East London Magistrate Court on the 03 November 2020.
