FREE FOR NOW: Kgosi Kgafela

Kgosi Kgafela II and brother escape jail after begging for forgiveness
Bakgatla Royals, Kgosi Kgafela II and his brother Morena Mmusi Kgafela handed themselves in at the Southern Regional Magistrate late Wednesday afternoon to avoid being jailed.
Senior magistrate Lot Moroka had on Tuesday reissued a warrant of arrest against the royals for failing to honour a court hearing on Monday.
The royals are reported to have “sincerely” apologized for not attending court saying they thought they had been excused from court, a thing that had been earlier on been raised by their lawyer Advocate Sidney Pilane.
Pilane had pleaded with the court to forgive the two on the grounds that deliberations between the prosecution and the defence team might have misled them into thinking that they were excused from showing up in court.
The Bakgatla royals are now due to appear for mention on Monday.
The two were due to be arrested as soon as they arrived in the country following a warrant of arrest that was issued by Magistrate Lot Moroka after the duo who are accused with 13 other Bakgatla tribesmen failed to turn up in court on Monday.
In issuing the arrest Moroka made it clear that the law has no regard for anyone’s position. High profile or nonentities all were equal in court.
He even reminded Pilane who was referring to them as “Kgosi Kgafela” and “Morena Mmusi” that the two were royals to him (Pilane) and not himself as to him they were just the accused.
The two royals and 13 members of the Bakgatla regiments are in court facing five charges of assault occasioning grievous bodily harm.
Since the news of illegal floggings erupted in Kgatleng in December, the media has been overwhelmed by what the complainants termed as abuse of human rights in the area.

I was home recently and I have to say that from what I heard, there has been a lot of good that came out of what this man has done but there are some things done by the people he has appointed that are clearly wrong even in the eyes of some ardent traditionalists! Apparently it is the failure of Kgosi Kgafela to be firm with and take serious stance against those he has appointed to work with him that has landed him in trouble with the law, some of these people very close to him! Many people, traditionalists and… Read more »

There is only 1 constitution in dis country which should be adhered to by all irrespectiv of which tribe you lead.Kgosi must rule his subjects with respect, dignity and have a clear vision of how he intends to lead his people.kgatleng is part of botswana under the presidency of Lt Gen khama, and let the judiciary deal with any criminal elements as they are bound to do so.Kgaela should face the music and i think it shall be a lesson to other dikgosi that they are not greater than the law of this land.
