Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

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
