- S v Lephowane (CA & R 9/2010)  ZAECGHC 580.14 MB
The appellant was convicted by the Regional Court of contravening section 4 (1) (b) (iv) of the Prevention and Combating of Corrupt Activities Act1 and sentenced to seven years imprisonment, three of which were conditionally suspended. He was duly granted leave to appeal against his conviction.
The appellant was a traffic officer, having served as such in different parts of the country. During 2002, he joined the Fort Beaufort or Nkonkobe Municipality in the same capacity under one Fiki who was the then Chief Traffic Officer of the Municipality. Fiki was suspended from that position early in 2005 amidst allegations that he was involved in corrupt activities and a disciplinary inquiry was duly convened to inquire into such allegations. The appellant was accordingly appointed to act in his stead as Chief Traffic Officer.
