Self-confessed fraud physio Modau accused of defrauding Department of Labour to appear

Self-confessed fraud physiotherapist awaiting sentencing for defrauding the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) is set to appear in the Pretoria Specialised Crime Court on Monday (October 15).

Physiotherapist Jones Mothemola Modau (31) from Rustenburg pleaded guilty in March to defrauding the Department of Labour. He was facing three counts of fraud and 14 counts of money laundering involving about R476 150,58.

Modau was originally appearing together with co-accused and former employees of Department of Labour’s Compensation Fund - Maxwell Ramaphosa, Samuel Mfeleng, and Kgabo Methi. The trio’s case has since been transferred to the Pretoria Magistrate’s Court in a separation of trial, and  have pleaded not guilty.

The accused are out on a warning. The defendants are allegedly accused of operating as a syndicate processing fictitious claims for services not rendered.

Ramaphosa, Mfeleng, and Methi are alleged to have siphoned off the DoL’s Compensation Fund by creating fictitious claims and channeled the money into Modau’s personal account and that of his Driving School business.

Modau last appeared on 27 September and pre-sentencing proceedings had to be halted by the Magistrate as the Court was still awaiting the Correctional Services and social workers ‘clinical’ reports.
