Charges against Dr Tumi and wife dropped

Well-eminent gospel vocalist and clinical specialist Tumisang Makweya, famously known as "Dr Tumi" has uncovered that extortion charges against him and his better half Kgaogelo Makweya have been dropped. 


Makweya and his better half dealt with indictments of purportedly duping the National Lotteries Board of almost R1.5 million. 

They were captured recently and were conceded bail of R3000 each in the wake of showing up in the Palm Ridge Specialized Commercial Crimes Court on Tuesday, 6 April 2021. 

The media character delivered an assertion on his web-based media accounts yesterday (30 September) saying charges against him and his significant other had been dropped. 


Phindi Mjonondwane from the NPA (National Prosecuting Authority) affirmed that charges against Dr Tumi and his better half had been removed. 

"There were six denounced and charges were just removed against Dr Tumi and his better half dependent on the result of effective portrayals. 

"Dr Tumi and his significant other made portrayals to the NPA identifying with the charges liked against them." 

"We properly viewed as their portrayals and they were fruitful." 

"There were no sensible possibilities of an effective indictment against them and hence in like manner coordinated that the charges evened out against them be removed," Mjonondwane said. 

Birds of prey representative Captain Ndivhuwo Mulamu recently expressed: 

"Further examination uncovered that the couple along with their co-denounced, Christopher Tshivule (46) and Thomas Ndadza (48) purportedly adjusted data on the archives submitted to the National Lotteries in September 2018." 

"This came about to the measure of over R1.5 million being moved into a private ledger." 

Dr Tumi expressed that equity had been served and said he and his better half had done nothing out of sorts.
