EASTERN CAPE – Simphiwe Beki (42) made a brief at the Port Alfred Magistrate Court on Thursday for alleged fraud and corruption.
Beki was arrested on the 21 August 2020 by the Hawks Serious Corruption Investigation and he was served with summonses to appear in court on Thursday following allegations that he made a false report claiming he tested an applicant for a driver’s license and passed.
The Traffic Chief gathered during his regular checks of the previous day’s goings-on in correlation with the video footage in the premises, he noted that the report was false as there was no truck that was utilised for testing any applicant for a drivers licence.
He immediately reported the matter to the Hawks for further investigation. It was established that the applicant was never tested and that Beki was allegedly paid R3000 gratification to facilitate the transaction.
Beki is expected back in the same court on 09 October 2020.
