The two former “fugitives” from justice allegedly accused of defrauding the Department of Labour’s (DoL) Compensation Fund (CF) of R1,2-million will tomorrow (May 15) appear in the Pretoria Specialised Commercial Crimes Court. 

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

Mahuluhulu, is an information technology (IT) fundi and 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.

Before their first court appearance last year, the ‘runaway’ accused have been on the run for two years. They are alleged to have committed their fraudulent activities between 2006 and 2009. They allegedly siphoned the DoL’s CF working as a syndicate 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.
