SAPS News: Kimberley Residents Scammed Over Re-Draw / New House Plans


Sol-Plaatje Municipality

The Northern Cape Directorate for Priority Crime Investigation (DPCI) is currently investigating irregularities regarding the re-draw or new house plans.

Several victims allegedly approached the Plan & Structure Office at Sol-Plaatje Municipality and made payments for both approval and drawing of new house plans or redraws.


Different amounts were paid to the person believed to be responsible for the processes but no services rendered in terms of drawing the house plans.

As part of the investigation, we kindly appeal to all the possible victims within Kimberly to come forward with their proof of such allegations. It is not known how many people were affected with this scam.

However, few victims came forward with reasonable evidence and we would like more possible victims to come forward, before the start of the prosecution processes.

Captain Emily-Harriet Mofoka from Commercial Crime Unit can be contacted with tangible information before 12 August 2016, on the following details:
