Durban - Eights years after two employees defrauded an FET College they have been jailed for three years.
This week the Durban Specialised Commercial Crime Court convicted Mphilisi Claude Mkhize, 45, a procurement officer and Tholakele Gracia Nzimande, 51, a lecturer to 12 counts of fraud.
According to KZN Hawks spokesperson, Captain Simphiwe Mhlongo, the pair had been employed at the Mnambithi FET college.
He said in 2013, two years after the fraud, the college had appointed a forensic company to investigate irregularities in the procurement of goods and services.
"This was after allegations of corruption were levelled against the convicted pair," said Mhlongo.
