Con artist back inside
Moleboheng Molotsane, the woman who tried to con the the presidency into paying for her stylish wedding and lavish honeymoon, has been arrested again.
Molotsane, 25, a former secretary in the office of President Thabo Mbeki, was taken into custody yesterday for violating her bail conditions.
She was arrested last month and charged with fraud after she used presidential letterheads to make companies believe that her wedding had been sanctioned by the highest office in the land.
The Vereeniging magistrates' court released her on R3500 bail and set strict conditions for her.
Magistrate Bruno van Eeden instructed that she may leave her Sharpeville home only on Sundays between 9am and 2pm to go to church.
Molotsane broke the terms of her bail conditions on Monday when she went to the radio station of the Vaal University of Technology in Vanderbijlpark, looking for a job.
Radio station manager Quincy Kekana said on Wednesday that Molotsane went to submit a proposal to host a morning show aimed at women's issues.
She looked shocked as police arrived at her home to rearrest her yesterday.
Molotsane's problems started when she married her sweetheart Benjamin Matli.
They married in a lavish hotel on the banks of the Vaal River.
However, their wedded bliss did not last long. They were both arrested for fraud after running up a bill of R90300 for hiring hotel facilities, a horse carriage and a car.
