A 38 year old school principal from Taung, North West, was arrested on Wednesday by the Hawks’ Serious Corruption investigation team.

The suspect allegedly submitted fraudulent travel claims exceeding R17 500. Investigations revealed that she allegedly used a state vehicle in October 2017 and fraudulently claimed official kilometres as though she used her private vehicle whilst executing work related duties. She is expected to appear at Taung Magistrates court on Thursday facing a charge of fraud.
