A Zimbabwean was arrested on Friday
on Madiba Street for allegedly being in possession of a fake ID.
Department of Home Affairs director
of fraud prevention and detection Nora Pitsi said it was unclear how the man
had obtained the document.
The owner of the document had lost
it, but was able to track down the fraudster who had assumed his identity but
replaced his photo. Pitsi said the owner convinced the fraudster to return it
and then tipped off the department.
Home affairs counter Corruption’s
Nora Pitsi said I also want to state this matter is still under further
investigation to uncover if there are any collision between the suspect and the
department of home affairs officials or any other practitioner that may be
involved in helping the suspect obtain these documents.
“We want to state that we will
continue working very closely with the Hawks in order to stomp down on
corruption Pitsi added.
