Education department director charged with fraud

In a startling turn of events, Thabo Sejanamane, a respected figure both in the education sector and the Methodist community in Potchefstroom, finds himself embroiled in a legal battle over allegations of fraud and impersonation.

In a surprising turn of events, Thabo Sejanamane, a Deputy Director at the Minimum Information Security Services (MISS) Directorate within the North West Department of Education, and a prominent deacon at the Methodist church in Potchefstroom, finds himself entangled in a legal dispute as allegations of fraud and impersonation emerge against him.

According to reports, Sejanamane, who holds significant responsibilities within both the education sector and the religious community, is accused of orchestrating a fraudulent transaction involving a 2010 Chevrolet Cruise belonging to his ex-wife, Dr. Carol Letshabo. The purported incident took place in February 2019 at Potchefstroom’s Daly Ford car dealership. Sejanamane allegedly traded the Chevrolet for a BMW, purportedly while impersonating his former spouse and forging her signature on a permission letter.

Furthermore, it is claimed that Sejanamane utilized a Green Book ID copy, previously destroyed by Home Affairs in 2015, during the transaction, adding complexity to the legality of the exchange. Despite the circumstances surrounding the transaction, Daly Ford has refrained from commenting on the matter.

After four years of legal proceedings, Sejanamane faced formal charges at the Potchefstroom SAPS on 9 May 2024. He first appeared before the Potchefstroom criminal magistrate court on 6 June 2024. Potchefstroom SAPS Col Myburgh stated that the court case has been postponed to 18 June 2024 and Sejanamane is not in custody.
