Two former “fugitives” from justice allegedly accused of defrauding the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) of R1,2-million are to appear in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court on Thursday (August 15).

Kenneth Martin Mahuluhulu (32) from Thohoyandou and co-accused Khathutshelo Nethengwe (35) from Olifantsfontein face fraud charges. The duo is out on a bail of R5000 each.

Mahuluhulu, an information technology (IT) fundi was nabbed last August at his place of work in Unisa, and his co-accused Nethengwe (35), a former employee of the Department of Labour’s CF subsequently handed himself to justice.

The accused have been on the run for more than two years. The runaway accused are alleged to have committed their fraudulent activities between 2006 and 2009. They allegedly connived in siphoning the department by submitting and processing fraudulent claims.

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