Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
The Land Bank's acting chief executive did not only lie about his identity document but his curriculum vitae is also riddled with untruths.
In his CV, Phil Mohlahlane claims, among other things, that he was an assistant professor between 1986 and 1988 at Tuskegee University in the US, but according to the qualifications in the same resume, he is not qualified to act as an assistant professor.
Mohlahlane, also known as "Dr Phil", claims he was a county agent between 1990 and 1992 and was promoted to county director in 1996.
Sowetan is in possession of a letter from the institution saying "Mohlahlane began employment with the former Auburn University Extension Service on September 16 1991, as assistant county agent".
By the time Mohlahlane resigned on September 9 1997, the organisation's name had changed to Alabama Cooperative Extension System, and Mohlahlane was "associate county agent coordinator in the Greene County Office".
Mohlahlane obtained his doctorate in jurisprudence at the Jones School of Law at Faulker University in 1997.
The law school was provisionally approved by the American Bar Association and received provisional approval on June 11 2006. This means that from 1997 to 2006, Mohlahlane's degree was a worthless piece of paper.
The CV says Mohlahlane was the deputy president of Bama Kids, a volunteer organisation in Alabama in the US.
But, Sheryl Threadgard, who also volunteers for the same project, disputed that and said Mohlahlane was only part of the committee and that he taught children soccer.
