“We are concerned about Mr. Van den Heever’s reported involvement as a director in more than 15 active companies, which raises questions about conflicts of interest in his role as liquidator,” said Falaz Corporation director, Emanuel Sefalafala in a statement.

During this liquidation process, Mr. Van den Heever and Werksmans Attorneys have allegedly engaged in questionable practices. Including unauthorised payments from the company’s accounts.

They fear that this may violate the Liquidation Act, Employment Equity Act, and Labour Relations Act.

Furthermore, court orders to close company accounts at ABSA and Nedbank were reportedly obtained through fraudulent surety forms introduced by a known loan shark, Scott Gush. These forged sureties have been used to liquidate four major companies owned by our Mr Sefalafala, causing disruptions and contract terminations.


“We have attempted to negotiate a settlement arrangement to protect our business and workforce, but Mr. Van den Heever rebuffed our efforts. 

Allegations have also been made regarding the involvement of Absa’s legal representative, Melliser Mullar, in these concerning events.

“Despite opening a criminal case against Scott Gush at the Randburg police station towards the end of 2023, we have seen no reported progress from SAPS or NPA,” he said.
