Corrupt official jailed for fraud

31 January 2014

A FORMER Home Affairs official accused of defrauding the department out of about R250000 was jailed for four years yesterday.

Even though Selby Skosana, 39, only pocketed R45000 of the total – and paid it all back – the Port Elizabeth Commercial Crimes Court ruled no other punishment was suitable as the offence was so prevalent.

Skosana, from Centurion, was employed as a senior accounting clerk in the Pretoria Home Affairs finance department at the time of the crime. His lawyer, Brian Maqungu, told the court Skosana was not strapped for cash and could not explain why he committed the offence.
