More and more people are being arrested for corruption and it surprising that they steal from the companies they work at. 

While we are still focusing on the former security officer who stole R4 million from the cash in transit company that she was working for,now another employee has been arrested for fraud. 

He is not just an ordinary employee but he was a specialist engineer at ABSA. Hawks have arrested him for allegedly fraudulently transferred R103 Million into six different bank accounts over four months. 

It is alleged that the engineer at ABSA Sandton branch, transferred the money between September and December 2021. 

The spokesperson of the Hawks, Captain Ndivhuwo Mulamu said the matter was reported by the bank to the authorities after an internal investigation. 

Mulamu said Masebeni was successfully traced and arrested in Queenstown in the Eastern Cape, last week Wednesday on the 19th of January. 

He was charged with theft and appeared in Komani (Queenstown) magistrate's court the next day. 

The 30- year- old engineer was kept in the cells pending further investigation. This matter was transferred the Palm Ridge specialised commercial crimes court and it is expected to be in court this coming Thursday on January 27 where he will get a legal representative and apply for bail. 

The Hawks have not ruled out more arrests and additional charges.
