Seven people have been arrested in Pietermaritzburg for allegedly lodging false claims with the Road Accident Fund (RAF), the KwaZulu-Natal police said on Thursday.

“On Wednesday, we arrested seven people aged between 32 and 52 in Northdale, Pietermaritzburg, for claiming to have been travelling in a minibus taxi that was involved in an accident,” Lieutenant-Colonel Vincent Mdunge said.

He said investigations revealed that none of the claimants was involved in an accident.

Meanwhile, on Sunday a 47-year-old man was arrested in Chatsworth, Durban, for allegedly defrauding the RAF by convincing people to lodge 1395 false claims against the RAF.

Percy Kali appeared in the Durban Commercial Crimes Court on Monday when he was and was released on bail of R15 000, Mdunge said.

He said more arrests were imminent. – Sapa
