They allegedly colluded and submitted false subsistence and travel claims to the police that they were booked at a guest house.

During trial, the state, led by Advocate Patrick Nkuna, heard the testimonies of the owner of the guest house, evidence from the police’s finance personnel, and a handwriting expert who testified that the invoices were forged

The matter was postponed to November 2 for sentencing.

Nkwanyana has another pending case.
He is standing trial on three counts of theft and three counts of defeating the ends of justice. The trial for this matter is set for November 7 to 8 in the Nelspruit Regional Court; Nkwanyana has in the meantime been dismissed from the police sector.
