gavel thumb100 ANA reports that twelve officials arrested in a pre-festive season anti-corruption crackdown on fraud related to vehicle and drivers licenses were due to appear in court in two provinces for bail applications on Monday.  

This was after spending the weekend in police cells, the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) said.  The suspects were arrested in KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) and Limpopo on Friday on allegations of fraud and contraventions of the National Road Traffic Act.  Seven of the suspects were from Limpopo and five from KZN, RTMC spokesman Simon Zwane said on Sunday.  The arrests followed raids conducted at private testing stations and a learner's licence testing authority.  Allegations against the Limpopo suspects, who include examiners of vehicles and data capture staff, are that they issued vehicle roadworthy certificates fraudulently for vehicles they had never physically inspected.  The five suspects arrested in KZN include four examiners of learner licenses employed in Underberg and a manager formerly employed at another learner licence centre in Howick.  It is alleged that the suspects participated in fraudulent activities by unlawfully and irregularly assisting applicants to pass their learner's licence tests.
