My name is Mrs. Bonny Mohlala, I am from South Africa and the wife of the
former Mbombela speaker Late Jimmy Mohlala. I know my email must have come
to you as a surprise, but please pardon me if that is the case. I am a woman
under intense pressure.
My husband, Jimmy Mohlala was assassinated outside our house in KaNyamazane
outside Nelspruit in South Africa on January, 2009 for being out spoken on
the way the building of the Mbombela FIFA 2010 World Cup stadium was
handled (Please you may go to this link for more information about my
husband http://allafrica.com/stories/201003291097.html). On March 25th, 2010
one of the alleged conspirator for the murder of my husband was arrested,
during the court appearance one of the witness confessed that large sum of
money was distributed to top Mbombela statesmen as a bribe/tip by the
Mbombela unit of the FIFA 2010 Organizing Committee in return for their
silence, which my husband was among the top statesmen. Although my husband
has been carelessly accused more than once for accepting the bribe in the
past, but I thought it's a political attack.
After the confession of this witness at the court hearing, I was very
unsettled. I got home to look for any evidence that could prove that my late
husband accepted any bribe from the committee or from whomever, and I found
that my husband has a bank account containing Eight Million Euro in one of
the banks in Europe. I initiated communication with the bank to confirm if
the fund exist, and the bank requested for my late husband death certificate
and other relevant documents, which I forwarded to them, and they confirmed
the fund to me and that my son Robert Eddy Mohlala is the next of kin to the
I have contemplated with my children regarding to this fund and we agreed
not to return it to the government, first, because we are not sure if the
fund was actually a bribe given to my late husband, secondly the bad name it
would give to my late husband if the fund is declared to the government.
However, we agreed to relocate the fund to a different bank account that
would have nothing to do with our family name to make sure that the
government does not discover the fund as we do not know what would be the
outcome of the ongoing court trail.
It is for this reason I am contacting you to assist us to provide a bank
account which the fund would be transferred into. My children and I agreed
to give you 40% of the total sum for your assistance, while the remaining
60% would be for me and my family, which we might invest past of it into any
lucrative business of your choice if that is OK with you.
I will give you further details and send copies of the documents my late
husband received from the bank the day he deposited the fund with the bank
and recent document my son received from the bank as soon as I received your
I am waiting for your urgent reply.
Mrs. Bonny Mohlala.
