Fraudster guilty on all charges

On Thursday 9 November 2017,a former financial clerk was found guilty in the Thembalethu Magistrates Court on 66 charges of fraud involving more than R300 000.

Chantelle Kyd (36) used her position as financial clerk at Thembalethu and Dellville Park primary schools to obtain cheques for personal gain.

Kyd's cousin, Mornay Wildeman cashed the cheques at the relevant bank, and in return would receive between R200 and R300 per transaction. Wildeman turned state witness for which he received indemnity from prosecution.

A letter written by Kyd was also used as evidence. In the letter, addressed to Robert Grootboom, Principal of Dellville Park Primary, Kyd told him that she is ashamed of what she did and that she apologised for the fact that the school was a victim of her actions.

Magistrate Eugenia Jacobs postponed the case till 14 December 2017 for sentencing.
