Yes, I cheated; I will pay them their monies – Titi

Sunday Observer - - NEWS -

The highly sought woman ac­cused of dis­ap­pear­ing with stokvel money, Titi Dlamini, has been traced and found by this news­pa­per.

Dlamini, in a tele­phone in­ter­view, con­firmed that she had left some debts be­hind at Lobamba and promised to set­tle them once she has se­cured money.

Asked about her where­abouts, she re­fused to dis­close her ex­act lo­ca­tion ex­cept to say she was vis­it­ing a rel­a­tive at Fonteyn in Mba­bane and would be go­ing to Mpolon­jeni (Mba­bane). Dlamini promised to visit the Swazi Ob­server of­fices to pro­vide more clar­ity on the debts but she never made it and her cell­phone rang unan­swered yes­ter­day when called.

Ac­knowl­edg­ing most of the debts that were re­ported, she how­ever, de­nied that she had re­lo­cated and es­caped. Dlamini also de­nied some of the debts, say­ing she would only hon­our those she was aware of.

“I did not es­cape; I am try­ing to raise the money. I didn’t re­lo­cate but the fa­ther of my chil­dren was the one that re­lo­cated af­ter Nt­siki grabbed the house­hold ap­pli­ances; two re­frig­er­a­tors, and told him about my se­cret af­fair.

Ru­ined

Even though I owed her, it was wrong of her to tell the fa­ther of my kids of the af­fairs I had be­cause she knows that he was my source of in­come,” she said.

Asked how she was go­ing to set­tle the debts now that her re­la­tion­ship with the fa­ther of her chil­dren, who was her source of in­come, had been ru­ined, Dlamini said she had asked her un­cle who owns pub­lic trans­port busi­ness to as­sist her.

“I am not em­ployed my brother, but I have asked my un­cle who owns pub­lic trans­port to as­sist me.

I have also talked to Man­dela and another woman from Elan­geni.

There is this per­son who up­dates me on what is go­ing on that side, please un­der­stand me. I did not es­cape, I told them that I will pay them,” she said.

She said part of the money was go­ing to be paid by the fa­ther of her chil­dren as he had also re­port­edly com­mit­ted to set­tling them.

“What made the oth­ers to come to you is that they noted the fa­ther of my chil­dren does not care what they said as he only talked with Nt­siki, say­ing he will pay her.

The other monies are go­ing to be paid by the fa­ther of my chil­dren as he agreed to do so as soon as he gets his bonus,” she said.

Chief Po­lice In­for­ma­tion and Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Off i c e r Su­per­in­ten­dent Phindile Vi­lakati said the mat­ter has not been re­ported to the po­lice but ad­vised peo­ple in­volved in stokvels to keep their monies with the bank as it is safe there.
