Matter of alleged fraud and money laundering involving Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund to proceed with evidence from witness

State evidence is to proceed in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court tomorrow (May 22) in the fraud trial of two former employees of the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) alleged to have defrauded the Department of Labour (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) R2,1-million.

Maxwell Ramaphosa (36) and Samuel Mfeleng (36) - both from Soshanguve in Pretoria - who were arrested in 2010 when their alleged deeds were exposed are out on a bail of R3000. Ramaphosa and Mfeleng face 15 counts of fraud and 26 counts of money laundering.

In the matter the former public servants are alleged to have been working as members of a syndicate in collaboration with convicted fraud physio Jurry Bonewamang Sehunoe, a physiotherapist from Rustenburg in North West to siphon the department’s Compensation Fund. Sehunoe pleaded guilty last year and was earlier in the year handed a five year suspended sentence.

During their last appearance on May 14, State witnesses testified that one of the accused (Ramaphosa) used the account of their Gladiator Driving School business for money laundering activities. Rodney Ntshuleneni Vele formerly of Gladiator Driving School testified that Ramaphosa asked him for use of the account and that, “his business will grow exponentially”.

Ramaphosa and Mfeleng are also trapped in two other fraud matters currently on trial in the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court.

The Compensation Fund is a public entity of the Department of Labour. The fund provides cushion for workers injured during work or diseases sustained
