Friday, 17 March, 2017 - 09:15

The Directorate on Corruption and Economic Crime, DCEC, says it is currently investigating the Mogoditshane sub-land board, over allegations of land allocation fraud.

The DCEC says it has assessed over 12 thousand plot files , of which over 300 files were seized for further investigations since 2005.

It says currently three officers working at the sub-land board, conspired by accepting 18 thousand Pula for themselves, as a reward for unlawfully allocating land to an individual.
The matter is before the high court.

The DCEC says at the end of 2015, there were 79 cases of land Fraud reported to them, involving 620 plots countrywide.

Mogoditshane sub land board is leading in the number of cases reported, with 26 cases reported, involving 135 plots.

The DCEC says perpetrators are taking advantage of opportunities presented by systems and procedures, as well as inadequacies in the laws when it comes to land allocation.
