Prophet swindles businessman of P79000

Thamaga police are investigating a case in which a Ramotswa businessman, Gobuamang Tlhomole claims to have been swindled of P79 000 by a prophet who promised him miracles and prosperity for his business, only to see it crumbling.

Commanding officer in District 11, Superintendent Kevin Mookodi confirmed that they have registered the case.
