northwestprovincePotchefstroom Herald reports that Thabo Sejanamane, a deputy director at the Minimum Information Security Services (MISS) Directorate within the North West Department of Education, and a prominent deacon at the Methodist church in Potchefstroom, has found himself entangled in a legal dispute involving allegations of fraud and impersonation.

According to reports, Sejanamane is accused of orchestrating a fraudulent transaction involving a 2010 Chevrolet Cruise belonging to his ex-wife, Dr Carol Letshabo. The purported incident took place in February 2019 at Potchefstroom’s Daly Ford car dealership. Sejanamane allegedly traded the Chevrolet for a BMW, purportedly while impersonating his former spouse and forging her signature on a permission letter. Furthermore, it is claimed that Sejanamane utilized a Green Book ID copy, previously destroyed by Home Affairs in 2015, during the transaction. Sejanamane faced formal charges at the Potchefstroom SAPS on 9 May 2024. His initial appearance before the Potchefstroom Magistrate’s Court was on 6 June 2024. The case was postponed to 18 June 2024 and Sejanamane is not in custody. Dr Letshabo commented: “We’re divorced, and a crime has happened that he needs to account for.”
