Mpumalanga Duo Nabbed For R2.2m Tax Evasion

Busisiwe Prudence Nkosi (35) and Simangaliso Ennocent Khoza (36) appeared in the Mbombela Magistrate's Court

Mpumalanga couple has appeared in court in connection with a R2.2 million fraud, theft and money laundering case. Busisiwe Prudence Nkosi (35) and Simangaliso Ennocent Khoza (36) appeared in the Mbombela Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

The Hawks’ Serious Commercial Crime Investigation Unit arrested Nkosi on Thursday for alleged tax evasion, according to Hawks spokesperson Captain Dineo Lucy Sekgotodi.

“The sole director of Madam and Eve General Trading has been charged in connection with fraud, theft and money laundering in contravention of the Prevention of Organised Crime Act, as well as the provisions of the Tax Administration Act,” Sekgotodi said.

It is alleged that, during April 2017, Nkosi allegedly fraudulently submitted false tax returns to the South African Revenue Service (SARS), which caused the taxman a loss of around R2.2 million.

“After she received the money, in a futile attempt to cover her tracks, she reportedly transferred it into different bank accounts,” Sekgotodi added.

It is believed that one of the accounts belonged to Khosa, who was arrested on Friday.

Nkosi and Khoza were each released on R10 000 bail.

The case has been postponed to 2 December.
