Two accused of cash wash scam get bail
TWO UGANDANS allegedly defrauded a Camperdown man of R60 000 after convincing him they had the powers to multiply his money by “washing” it in a river, the Pietermaritzburg High Court heard yesterday.
Edward Borgere, 34, and Unam Semakule, 36, were arrested after the anticipated riches did not materialise in two weeks – the time period the victim was given for the “magic” to work.
The two were initially denied bail but the Pietermaritzburg High Court reversed this decision when it emerged that both men had South African wives by whom they each had a child.
They had to surrender their passports. – Sapa
