Pastor sought for Safa fraud

A LIMPOPO pastor who doubles as a senior soccer official is being sought in connection with several cases of fraud.

The Modimolle police said yesterday they were looking for John Mathalela Mthunzini, who they believe could help them solve about 17 cases of fraud.

Police spokesperson Superintendent Malesela Ledwaba said Mthunzini disappeared two months ago when he heard that police were looking for him.

Mthunzini is the secretary of Safa in the Waterberg region. He allegedly defrauded the association of more than R50000 between October last year and April this year. He is a pastor at the Total Surrender Church.

A source claimed Mthunzini used Safa cheques to withdraw money by forging other officials' signatures as he was not the only signatory to the association's funds.

Anyone with information is requested to call 082-565-8606.
