NCRREGISTERED DEBT COUNSELLORS
THE SA Police inMthatha is investigating alle-
gations against a woman who allegedly made
empty promises of jobs for youth fromMthatha
and surrounding areas to be cleaners in the
Botha Sigcau Building.
Some of the young people told Express that
even though the woman never asked them to
paymoney for thepromised jobs, theywerecon-
cernedover the fact that theygaveher their per-
sonal information and bank statements.
She cannot be named as she has not yet been
charged and has not yet appeared in court.
After realising that her promises were lies,
some of the victims went to the Madeira Police
Station to ask for assistance. Theywere advised
to open a case so thematter could be investigat-
About 70 people were allegedly promised em-
ployment as cleaners promises which never
realised. Some of the victims were allegedly
even advised to resign from their previous jobs
as they were going to get better salaries with
benefits from the promised employment.
Some of the people were allegedly told to sign
time sheets everyday despite not working. One
of the victims, Pretty Nobanda, said they sub-
mitted their particulars to this woman in No-
vember last year. They were always called to
sign the time sheets even though theywere still
waiting to start their duties.
What we want to know is what is it that she
was doing with our particulars because we be-
lieve that shewas notworking alone in this.We
want to know the motive, said Nobanda.
Wewere signing timesheets even thoughwe
used to gather at one of the hotels in Mthatha,
said another victim.
Nobanda said they suspected foul play after
a group of victims followed the woman to the
Botha Sigcau Building where she said she was
working. It is alleged that the group saw her
throwing documents with personal particulars
into the dustbin outside theBothaSigcauBuild-
She further said that theywerenowafraidbe-
cause they were receiving calls from unknown
people asking them to confirm if they were
working for the government.
Police Spokesperson Mzukisi Fatyela con-
firmed that the suspect was arrested. For now
I am not sure when she will appear in court
since police are still investigating, he said.

THE Eastern Cape Provincial Police Com-
missioner, Lieutenant-General Celiwe
Binta visited and launched the National
Police Day 2015 Front line Service Delivery
(FSD) programme at the Butterworth Po-
lice Station recently.
The intention of the visit was to empha-
size the importance of front line service de-
livery. The event was also attended by
King Zwelonke Sigcau. The Butterworth
Police Station had been selected as one of
nine police stations in the country where
front line service delivery improvements
would be piloted.
Whether it is a statement that is to be
taken or a crime prevention programme to
be launched, it should be done thoroughly.
Our success in this area is reliant on com-
mand and control, said Binta.
According to Binta this programme was
launched nationally by the National Com-
missioner General Riah Phiyega and was
rolled out in all nine provinces.
Chairperson of the Community Policing
Forum in the province, Ray Maqhutyana,
congratulated Butterworth SAPS for the
successful arrest and conviction of a serial
killer who terrorized women in the area be-
tween 2008 and 2012.
Bulelani Mabhayi was charged with 20
counts of murder and 16 charges of rape.
He pleaded guilty on all counts andwas sen-
tenced to life imprisonment.
The Community Policing Forum (CPF)
is ready and willing to work with the police
to fight crime in our areas where we are
staying, said Maqhutyana.
