The Northern Cape Hawks Commercial Crime Unit said they welcomed the assistance they received with regards to its investigation on irregularities pertaining to the redraw or new house plans at Sol Plaatjie municipality.
The Hawks provincial spokesperson, Capt Philani Nkwalase said they wish to invite any person affected to come forward still.
“Several victims allegedly approached the Plan & Structure Office at Sol-Plaatje Municipality and made payments for both approval and drawing of new house plans or redraws. Different amounts were paid to the person believed to be responsible for the processes but no services rendered in terms of drawing the house plans.
“As part of the investigation, we kindly appeal to all the possible victims within Kimberly to come forward with their proof of such allegations. It is not known how many people were affected with this scam. However, few victims came forward with reasonable evidence and we would like more possible victims to come forward,” Nkwalase said.
He said those who want to lay a charge can contact Colonel Potelo from Commercial Crime Unit with tangible information on 053-838 5564 / 071 481 2827.
