A Cape Town woman has been arrested at a house in Dennemere near Blue Downs on Friday, June 25, for being in possession of drugs worth an estimated value of R240 000.
As reported by SABC, the 40-year-old woman who was found with eight plastic bags containing Mandrax tablets will appear in the Blue Downs Magistrate’s court once she has been charged.
Meanwhile, 47-year-old Mlondolosi Patrick Maseti, a Director of Zwelonke Burial Services, appeared in the Specialised Serious Commercial Crimes Court in Bellville for sentencing on Wednesday, June 23.
He was arrested by the Hawks Serious Commercial Crimes investigation team on February 8 2021. According to a police statement, over the period between 2015 and 2018, Maseti solicited payments from multiple individuals to the value that surpasses R2.3 million in respect of funeral insurance covers offered to the public.
“Maseti, a businessman based in Khayelitsha, utilised his business called “Zwelonke Burial Service (Pty) Ltd” as a financial service provider without the required documentation, therefore contravening the Financial Advisory and Intermediary Service Act,” the statement said.
Maseti was subsequently sentenced to three years of Correctional Supervision in terms of the Criminal Procedure Act 51 of 1977.
