Five former traffic officials from the Umngeni local municipality in the KwaZulu-Natal Midlands were sentenced to imprisonment for assisting people to pass their learner's test in exchange for a bribe.

Mhlongo said the investigation revealed that examiners were using a laser torch to point out the correct answers on the computer screen.

“The learner would then select the correct answer as indicated by the examiner. As a result the learners would pass the driver learner's test. A gratification of up to R3,000 was allegedly paid by each learner prior to the test.” The accused were arrested in March 2018 and appeared in court several times until they were all found guilty of fraud in November last year.

Nkala was convicted of 49 counts of fraud and was sentenced to eight years’ imprisonment, suspended for five years on condition that he is not found guilty of fraud or theft during the period of suspension. He was further sentenced to three years’ correctional supervision.Ndlovu was convicted of seven counts of fraud and sentenced to four years’ direct imprisonment.Phungula was convicted for 15 counts of fraud and sentenced to four years’ direct imprisonment.
