Hawks rearrest Limpopo department manager for failing to comply with court order


A 58-year-old Limpopo department of higher education centre manager, who is a former police officer, will appear in the Modimolle Magistrate’s Court on Friday for contempt of court after being rearrested for failing to comply with the court order on Thursday.

Hawks spokesperson Captain Matimba Maluleke said the suspect, who was based in Modimolle, was initially arrested by the Hawks Serious Corruption Investigation unit in 2018 for soliciting R2,500 gratification from a job seeker whom he promised to employ at the department.

“After making numerous court appearances, the suspect was convicted on 23 January 2020 by the Modimolle Magistrate Court and sentenced to 3 years imprisonment wholly suspended for 5 years. The court had also ordered the suspect to pay the victim an amount of R16,250 on or before 31 July 2020.

“The suspect never paid the victim until the prescribed period lapsed.

“The victim went back to report the suspect’s disobedience to the authorities. The court authorized a warrant of arrest against the suspect and he was rearrested at his workplace in Bela Bela.”
