Morwesi Theledi Crime
Notably, she gained recognition as an ex-convict due to a past incident involving fraudulent activities during her time as a bank worker.
Morwesi, now an ex-convict, faced legal troubles in 2010 when she was arrested for fraudulent activities involving a bank. The ordeal began in 2008 when her regular customers pressured her to steal money by threatening harm to her son and family members. Initially, these customers provided tips, money vouchers, and even paid her debts, creating a situation where she felt compelled to steal from the bank.
Under the pressure and threats, Morwesi agreed to steal R2.7 million, with an additional R300,000 set aside. Realizing her mistake, she delayed the transactions and eventually blocked the account by inflating the amount from R2.7 million to R27 million.
When the syndicate discovered that the money was not transferred, they reported her to the police. Morwesi was arrested in 2010 and subsequently sentenced to 10 years in prison in 2012. Remarkably, she was pregnant with her second child at the time of her arrest, and the child was born in prison. After two years, the child was taken to live with Morwesi’s parents. As of 2021, her second-born is now 11 years old.
In 2016, Morwesi was released after serving her sentence. She has undergone significant personal growth and is actively utilizing the skills she acquired during her time in prison.
