It's exactly nine months since a Limpopo man disappeared into a river after allegedly being caught bonking a taxi operator's wife.
Dickson Makeke, a former employee of the Greater Sekhukhune district municipality (GSDM), was allegedly caught in the act by the woman's husband on January 18 at GaMampuru village in Steelpoort, near Burgersfort.
Makeke, 45, ran into the fast-flowing Tubatse river with the husband in hot pursuit. He did not reappear.
GSDM spokesman Sizwe Yende said yesterday Makeke's pension payout was on hold. Before it was paid out, the claimant would have to prove Makeke was dead.
Police spokesman Superintendent Ronel Otto said they had not lost hope of finding Makeke.
She appealed to members of the public to come forward with any information they may have.
Some months ago Makeke was allegedly seen at the funeral of a long-time friend in GaSelala village near Burgersfort.
More recently he was apparently seen at a bank in Groblersdal, a day after he was allegedly at the Department of Home Affairs there.
His family said they will check the bank's surveillance camera but so far have not made any attempt to do so.
