THEFT CHARGE FOR UNI STUDENT | The university student who blew R800 000 accidentally deposited in her account is now facing a theft charge.
Western Cape police spokesperson Brigadier Miranda Mills said: “Intellimail officials laid a charge today at [the] Berlin police station. The normal investigation procedures will be followed.”
Sibongile Mani‚ who is the branch secretary of the Pan Africanist Student Movement of Azania (Pasma) had her life turned upside down over the last week after it was revealed that she had spent more than R800‚000 of money that had accidentally been paid into her account.
In a statement last week‚ Intellimail CEO Michael Ansell said: “The student … did not report the oversight but chose rather to access the funds. When the error was discovered in early August 2017‚ she had misappropriated R818‚000.”
