KwaZulu-Natal’s Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta) MEC Sipho Hlomuka is being impersonated on Facebook by alleged blackmailers.
The department warned the public in a statement late Tuesday about falsification of Facebook accounts pretending to be his.
“The MEC urges the public to ignore and report such accounts, some of which have attempted to extort money from unsuspecting people.
” MEC Hlomuka does not have a Facebook account.
“Residents who want to be informed about the activities of the MEC can visit the official website of KZN Cogta,” said the department.
