The investigation into Telkom CEO Sipho Maseko’s alleged use of cloned number plates has been completed, with a docket now with the police, according to a Sunday Times report.
Speaking to the paper, JMPD director Gerrie Gerneke said that the matter is now a criminal case.
“We have more than enough information against this man,” he said.
As there has been no admission of guilt from the Telkom head, Gerneke is quoted as saying Maseko “will have to appear” in court.
In July, businessman Mabena Motshoane said he spotted his cloned number plates on a black Range Rover, belonging to Maseko.
He said that Maseko ran up about R30,000 in traffic fines using the cloned number plates.
Telkom responded to the issue, saying that it is a “personal matter” that is in no way related to the group.
“As such, Maseko will deal with it in his personal capacity,” said Telkom.
The group also avoided discussing the matter at the company’s annual general meeting.
When asked for comment by the paper, Maseko maintained that he is co-operating with authorities, but will not comment as no official charges have been laid.
The full story can be read in the 7 September edition of the Sunday Times.
