gavel thumb100 TimesLIVE reports that an Eastern Cape woman will spend the next 15 years behind bars for stealing more than R2m from her employer. The Mthatha Regional Court sentenced Vuyokazi Kati, 37, on Monday.

She had been manager of the stationery company Inkspot between 2013 and 2019. Police spokesperson Capt Yolisa Mgolodela reported that Kati had been responsible for collecting cash from the cashiers in store before the company closed, with the sole purpose of recording and depositing the money in the company bank account. “It was alleged Kati would record and deposit incorrect sums of money generated by the company daily. She would keep the surplus for self-enrichment at the expense of the company. Her conduct prejudiced the company cash to the value of R2.3m,” Mgolodela reported. The matter was reported to the Mthatha Serious Commercial Crime team for investigation and culminated in her arrest in November 2019. After a number of court appearances, Kati was hit with direct imprisonment without the option of a fine.
