Black dollar scammer sentenced
Black money scam

A Uganda citizen, Sadaan Wakaza (39) pleaded guilty and was sentenced to five years in jail, suspended for five years, after he was arrested for fraud by the Hawks in Welkom.

On 3 April Sadaan Wakaza   and another man were arrested at the Bongani Nurses Home while they were involved in “washing black money.”

The Hawks had received information that stained money was to be “washed" in a safe in Welkom. A search and seizure was conducted at the Bongani Hospital nurses home. On entering the complainant and two suspects were found. The complainant explained that the two suspects asked her to give them R250 000 to buy ink to change black notes into money. She gave them R42 000 and realised it is a scam. The police confiscated 11 684 X R100 black stained notes and a Hyundai vehicle.

A plea agreement in terms of Section 105A took place in the Welkom District Court on 16 April. The charge against one of the accused was withdrawn and  Wakaza  was found guilty on  1  charge and sentenced to 5 years direct imprisonment, wholly suspended for 5 years.
