The charges against Telkom CEO Sipho Maseko of unlawfully driving a car with falsified number plates have been dropped.
This is according to a report by Bloomberg.
Bloomberg stated that Maseko “declined to comment as he left the Magistrate’s court in the city’s Wynberg suburb on Friday”.
The Star reported on 25 July 2014 that Maseko was at the centre of a JMPD investigation into a car licence cloning scandal.
The newspaper reported that Maseko “stands accused of running up about R30,000 in traffic fines – to be paid by another driver”.
According to businessman Mabena Motshoane, he spotted his cloned number plates on a black Range Rover, belonging to Maseko.
“Whatever is happening in terms of allegations about him [Maseko] being on the wrong side of the law is being investigated by the JMPD,” said city spokesman Nthatisi Modingoane at the time.
In July, Telkom said the matter “is personal to Mr Maseko and is in no way related to Telkom”.
