Do you remember the story of a Mall of Africa SBV Security Guard who made off with R4m without a single shot fired?
Bathobile Mlangeni (29) has been arrested after Gauteng Task Team for Serious and Violent crime received a tip-off that she was hiding in Zola, Soweto.
In July 2019, Mlangeni allegedly cut open two bulk cash bags and transferred the money into a number of refuse bags before placing them in a trolley and walking out the Mall of Africa, where she was on duty.
She has been on the run for more than two years.
Apparently two weeks after Mlangeni allegedly stole the money. She sought refuge in a three-roomed RDP house in Buhle Park township, near Germiston, under the pretext of being on the run from “an abusive boyfriend”.
She was nabbed by the police last week. Mlangeni made her first appearance at the Alexandra Magistrates Court on Friday morning.
She made an application for Legal Aid at court as she claimed she can’t afford an attorney. Her bail hearing has been postponed to Monday for a legal aid attorney to be appointed for her.
