There was drama yesterday when members of the police crime intelligence unit from Gauteng arrested the son of a top Kungwini municipality councillor outside Bronkhorstspruit police station.

Zamani Motaung, 25, the son of a Zithobeni councillor, was arrested in a sting operation outside Steers restaurant, a few metres away from the Bronkhorstspruit police station.

Motaung allegedly used fraudulent documents to buy a BMW 3 series car.

The investigating officer made an appointment to meet him at the restaurant and Motaung was not aware the police had arranged to arrest him.

Motaung, wearing a bandana with an ANC emblem and white tracksuit pants with the Kungwini municipality logo during his arrest, looked confused and frightened when he was cuffed and shoved into the back of a police vehicle.

He was taken to Bronkhorstspruit police station where he was questioned about his BMW.

He led the police to his residence in Zithobeni township, where he lives with his girlfriend, but the car was not there.

He told the police that the car had been repossessed by the bank because he had defaulted on his instalments, according to police sources.

At his residence police confiscated a fake identity document, a credit card and a pay-slip.

Police said that, according to the fraudulent pay-slip, Motaung earned R31500 a month as a director of a fictitious company. They said the pay-slip and the fake ID had been used to buy Motaung's BMW.
