Primarily based on police spokesperson Brig Motantsi Makhele, the trio allegedly impersonated SA Social Security Agency (Sassa) officers.

“They include been arrested by Newcastle police on March 3 2021 after it emerged that they include been concentrated on pensioners for the duration of pension payouts at diversified post locations of work and properties pretending to be Sassa officers or americans promoting previous medication (muthi) to pensioners,” acknowledged Makhele.
