Gauteng man tries to swipe late father’s estate

A 41-year-old man has been granted bail after he was arrested for allegedly defrauding his late father’s estate.

Molefe Msweli is believed to have tried to claim more than R14 million from his deceased father’s estate.

Hawks spokesperson, Captain Ndivhuwo Mulamu, said Msweli allegedly submitted misleading and fake documents to the Master of the Gauteng High Court to claim from his father’s estate as the sole beneficiary.

“Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation in Johannesburg immediately started with investigations based on the Master of the High Court’s suspicions of fraud on the deceased’s will, allegedly submitted by Msweli in June last year, just two months after his late father’s passing,” she said.

Further investigation revealed that Msweli claimed over R14 million worth of immovable properties and insurance policies payout.

Msweli handed himself in at the Hawks’ office in Johannesburg, accompanied by his lawyer, and was charged for fraud.

Mulamu said the court granted Msweli bail of R2, 000 and the case was postponed to 22 September for further investigation.
