Municipal worker arrested for selling jobs

Municipal worker arrested for selling jobs....

Johannesburg - A Mogale City local municipality employee was arrested on Tuesday for "selling" jobs that were advertised by the municipality in Krugersdorp, Gauteng police said.

Colonel Tummi Shai said the 38-year-old woman promised jobs to destitute applicants at the cost of R1 500 each.

An undisclosed amount of money, which was allegedly paid to her by some of the applicants, was found in her possession.

The woman, who was employed as an environmental specialist for almost a decade, was known to have been leading a lavish lifestyle, Shai said.

"[She had] at least two luxurious vehicles, an Audi A4 and an Audi Q7 SUV.

"It is very likely that we will also be engaging the Asset Forfeiture Unit to look into her possessions having been possibly acquired through the proceeds of crime."

The woman was expected to appear in the Krugersdorp Magistrate's Court on Thursday on charges of fraud.
