NEPC opens theft and fraud case against former CEO

The New Era Publication Corporation (NEPC) has opened a case of theft and fraud against the corporation's former boss, Audrin Mathe for transferring a company vehicle to his name without its blessing and knowledge, information at Nampa's disposal reveals.

This comes after the corporation learned last week that Mathe transferred and registered the company vehicle - a grey Range Rover Sport - which was purchased for the use of NEPC chief executive officer, to his name, despite leaving the position in January 2019.

The NEPC has also drawn the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) into the matter as it seeks recourse in the longstanding matter.

The car was transferred and registered to Mathe's name on 04 April 2019, three months after his departure from the corporation.

When his contract ended, Mathe refused to hand over the car's keys to NEPC, citing that it was part of his employment package Nampa understands.
