A South African Airways air hostess found herself in the Bellville Commercial Crimes Court today after she was arrested at the Cape Town International Airport on wednesday.

Mobuzwe Ncwana, the SAA air hostess who previously worked at Cell-C, was found responsible for stealing cellphones worth approximately R510 000 while employed in Cell-C's telesales department. She was sentenced to five years imprisonment.

The jail term was however, suspended on condition that she pay a R50 000 lump sum to Cell-C by the end of July this year and then continue to pay the balance in monthly R4 000 instalments.

Her latest arrest was due to the non payment of the R50 000 lump sum.

She told the court that she requested a wealthy uncle to make the lump sum payment on her behalf. In her last contact with him, he said he was due to depart on a business trip and would pay the money before he left, but he had not done so. She has been unable to contact him since.

Magistrate Amrith Chabilall postponed the case to December 3, and warned Ncwana that her fate depended on whether she had paid the R50 000 lump sum by then.
