The Hawks Serious Commercial Crime Unit served senior officers at Ga-Segonyana local municipality with charges of fraud and contravention of section 173 of the Municipal Finance Management Act 56 of 2003 (MFMA).
A 39 year old former senior employee at the municipality was arrested on Tuesday 20 June 2017. 
Another senior officer (64) working at Ga-Segonyana municipality was arrested last week. They were both arrested through (J175) court summons.
The Hawks investigation revealed some
irregularities that dated back to September 2012 during the process of selecting a service provider for the municipality. It is alleged that the company that won a tender bid, submitted invalid documents. The company was contracted for three years and received a total of R 9 800 000 paid out on monthly instalments for the service rendered. Consequently, two senior company officers were also charged on various counts of fraud.
All four suspects will appear at Kuruman Magistrate's Court on Wednesday, 5 July 2017.

Father's Day is a cele-bration honouring fathers and celebrating fatherhood, paternal bonds, and the influence of fathers in society. It is also know as a day where kids give their fathers gifts and presents as a way of showing love and appreciation. Kathu Village Mall management joined forces with Trappers Trading to make one father enjoy his fatherhood.
The Trappers represented by Nico and Maria Visser, Riekie Tereblanche, manager of the mall, and independent practi-sing attorney Erika Viljoen held a draw on 20 June 2017 to award one lucky winner with a R 15 000 voucher to spend at Trappers trading. The mall contributed R12 500 and Trappers a R 2 500 gift card to make the competition possible.
Mrs Leona Van Der Merwe was over the moon when she got a call that informed her that she was the lucky winner of the father's day competition and she had won a staggering R 15 000 voucher. Even though Mrs Van Der Merwe's husband passed away she believes it would have been a wonderful father's day gift to him.

Colorado Spur in Kathu sponsored two vouchers and the winners were two grade one learners, Thorne Poul from Curro Kathu and Oarabile Zazo from Rehoboth Christian School. These learners wrote the most creative father's day letters to the Kathu Gazette. Thank you Spur for spoiling them.

Women and child abuse has been and still is a big problem in South Africa as thousands of women and children fall victims every year. The excessive levels of this situation have kept many organisations worried about the future of South Africa.
According to the Independent Democrat website, one in every three women will be raped at least once in their lifetime. The reports further highlighted that babies as young as three weeks old are being raped more often
than not.
The country has recently witnessed strings of women and child abuse and that has kept everyone on their toes.
On Thursday 01 June 2017, the community of Deben, Gamagara municipality, together with the MEC of Health Mr Motlha-ping and the Gamagara municipality executives gathered at Maria Leeu multi-purpose centre at Deben. They embarked on a peace march to the SAPS Deben where they handed over a pledge to the Station Commander.
“We are here today to seek the intervention of the police, as the level of violence is getting out of hand. We would also like to encourage the community to name and shame perpetrators in our communities. We must use the old method that says Your child is my child in order to protect them” said Gamagara Mayor Dineo Moyo.
MEC Motlhaping said it is very important for men to take into consideration the way they think and stop making excuses for their misbehaviour. He advised men to be an inspiration to their kids and lead by example.
