tshwane thumb100 Pretoria News reports that the public in Tshwane have been warned not to fall prey to fraud and corruption by scammers at municipal driving licence testing centres.

MMC for Roads and Transport Katlego Mathebe sounded the alarm about people masquerading as municipal officials and luring unsuspecting clients to demand cash from them for services at the licensing centres. She cautioned motorists against participating in fraud and corruption at licensing centres after several cases had been brought to the City’s attention by members of the public. Mathebe said the City had followed through on reported cases and “felt it necessary to caution residents to take measures to stand against fraud and corruption”. She pointed out that no cash payments should be made to anyone because all City of Tshwane licensing centres were cashless. Clients should ensure that they kept the proof of payment made at all times. The warning was against the backdrop that there appeared to be scammers posing as City employees or purporting to have contacts at the licensing centres. Mathebe stressed that it was the responsibility of every licensing service centre client to confirm that the person assisting them was in fact a City employee.
