Ex police spokesperson in court

Johannesburg - Former KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Vincent Mdunge, accused of fraudulently presenting a fake matric certificate when he joined the police, is expected to appear in the Durban Regional Court on Thursday.

His former teacher told the court in May, that he personally handed Mdunge a matric certificate.

Vusimuzi Donald Duke Khumalo told the court he was Mdunge's English teacher in 1984 and 1985, when Mdunge matriculated from Ukusa High School in Hammarsdale.

Mdunge faces three charges of fraud and one of uttering a forged document.

Two of Mdunge's fraud charges relate to his presentation of the alleged fraudulent certificate to the SA Police Service when he joined the police in 1987.

He resigned last year, after the allegation surfaced in September, and he was arrested in October.

The third fraud charges relates to his presentation of the alleged fraudulent certificate to the University of South Africa to obtain admission for a course to obtain a National Diploma in Police Administration.

In March, a provincial education department official told the court that the department had no record of a matric certificate for Mdunge, and the one Mdunge claimed was his had been "tampered with unlawfully".

So why isn't the fraudster at the helm of the SABC not in court for the same thing? Yep, he is in court but only fighting to keep his job. Why were no charges laid against him? Surely the DA can lay criminal charges as an interested party?

UNISA didn't see that also? Hmmm makes you wonder how many people apply for university degrees without legit matric certificates & get away with it

This is just a tip of an iceberg,it is clear that there many more certifcates of that nature not only in the police force,even in the education system especially considering the high fail rate in some schools.
