"All I want is my money, all of it and nothing else."

These were the words of self-proclaimed "proudly South African white Afrikaner" Attie Strauss.

Strauss, 52, of Ventersdorp in North West, had worked for Tshepo Tsheloane, who won a contract from the Department of Public Works to erect fencing along a 30km stretch of road.

"He is giving me my money in instalments. He keeps promising he will get back to me, but never does," said Strauss.

Tsheloane said: "I honestly do not know what Attie is talking about.

"As far as I know I do not owe him anything. Stop taking him seriously."
