Newsline: Mozambican embassy driver suspended in Swaziland petrol theft scam

A driver at the Mozambican embassy, Boy Ngubeni has since been suspended from work due to his pending court case. Ngubeni was arrested with two others for allegedly defrauding a Galp Filling Station E31 456.16 using a petrol card belonging to the Mozambican Embassy. Ngubeni was the driver who allegedly gave a Mozambican Embassy petrol credit card to the other two who were working at the filling station at the time. The duo has also been suspended from the filling station. In fact, the driver had only been suspended recently and despite having been arrested several weeks ago, he still continued going to work. According to court papers, Ngubeni allegedly stole the fuel card to be used in filling petrol in other vehicles other than that of the embassy. The embassy authorities had no idea that one of the credit cards was fast depleting, which eventually amounted to thousands of Emalangeni.
