Woman wanted for RAF fraud
The Gugulethu resident is wanted by cops for 'lying about being knocked over'

A warrant has been issued for the immediate arrest of a woman who allegedly submitted a false claim against the Road Accident Fund.

Nothombi Simanga from Gugulethu failed to respond when her name was called on Monday in the Bellville Specialised Commercial Crime Court.

She was due to make her fifth appearance on a charge of fraud, before magistrate Sabrina Sonnenberg.

It is alleged she lodged a false claim for R10 000 against the RAF, for injuries suffered after being knocked over as a pedestrian in Gugulethu four years ago.

She falsely stated she worked for Edcon (Pty) Ltd at the time. Investigations also revealed neither cops nor the ambulance services had any record of the incident. She did see a doctor, but failed to inform him she had been knocked over by a car.

The prosecutor alleges she fabricated the incident.
