Earlier MEC Lekgoro had issued a warning to would-be con artists to desist from their wayward and illegal activities. "We would like to caution other people who might be thinking of defrauding the State that they too will be uncovered and brought to book. In the past we have arrested people who, for one reason or the other, thought that they could defraud the State and sell RDP houses meant for the poor," said MEC Lekgoro.
The court will resume on 3 December 2009, at the Alberton Magistrates Court.
