Mahumapelo warns the public about an imposter   


The Office of the Premier of the North West wishes to warn members of the public about an imposter who goes around phoning unsuspecting members of the public, claiming to be Premier Supra Mahumapelo.

This imposter has reportedly tried to solicit money from people in several provinces including Gauteng, Western Cape and Eastern Cape.

The Office of the Premier wishes to state that the Premier does not go around phoning people asking for money. 

 

We call on all people who are approached by this fraudster to notify the police immediately. 

In the latest incident, the imposter contacted an MP residing in the Western Cape, requesting financial assistance for an alleged student named Tshepo Moroka, who was purportedly stranded in Cape Town.

He reportedly claimed that he was requested by the President to assist the son of an old acquaintance. 

The imposter claimed that he was still busy preparing for a visit by the President and requested the MP to transfer R2000 to Moroka.

However, the MP became suspicious after realising that the cell number used was not registered.

Police are investigating the matter.
