The Witbank Magistrate’s Court in Mpumalanga has postponed the sentencing of a former employee of the South African Social Security Agency (Sassa).

Alina Nkwanyana was found guilty of fraud and forgery. She was arrested after submitting a fake matric certificate when applying for the position of Senior Administration Officer at Sassa in 2006.

“A case against the former Sassa employee Dimakatso Alina Nkwanyana, who is facing charges of fraud and forgery, has been postponed to the 6th and 7th of December 2021, for sentencing processing in the Middleburg Crimes Court. The matter was postponed because the probation officer report was not ready,” explains Mpumalanga NPA Spokesperson Monica Nyuswa.
