“We cannot be certain to say when this started or when it happened as we are still carrying out investigations. They are still being questioned and not yet charged. Should the investigations reveal that they are the suspects for that matter that’s when we can charge them for stealing by a person employed in the public service,” explained Ramoseki.

When found guilty for the offence one is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding seven years.
