OFF TO JAIL: Tlamelo Kwapa

Mochudi man detained for helping brother escape arrest
A Mochudi man charged with helping his elder brother escape police arrest over a stolen property has been remanded in custody until his next court appearance.
Tlamelo Kwapa,22, on Wednesday appeared before Kgosi Modise Pilane for allegedly preventing four special constables from arresting his elder brother, Tefo, who had allegedly tricked a lady out of a cell phone.
Testifying before the Mochudi Customary Court three of the cops who were involved in the incident said they had been in the process of arresting Tefo who was resisting their attempts when Tlamelo interfered, grabbing one them by the belt and pulling him away from the man he was trying to arrest.
“As he pulled me his brother who already had a hand cuff on one hand escaped my grip and attacked us with the hand cuff and wounded one of our colleagues twice on the head,” special constable Goitsemang Maembulwa told the court.
The injured cop named as special constable Maruatona did not appear in court.
But the accused man denied manhandling Maembulwa and said he had asked what the problem was and left the cops alone after they warned him not to interfere.
“I only asked them what was wrong and when they told me to keep out of it I went into the bar and bought myself a drink. When I came out of the bar my brother was gone. The cops then asked me to come with them to their office. I went with them and was surprised when they started kicking me when we reached the charge office. They then detained me and charged me with preventing them from doing their work,” Tlamelo Kwapa said.
The young man who nervously fidgeted and was close to tears when the case adjourned went on to tell the Kgotla that he would be calling two witnesses.
Kgosi Pilane then decided to remand Kwapa in custody for two weeks when Sergeant Sam Situmbeko, who appeared for the state, requested that he be detained until the next court appearance least he dodge the cops like his elder brother.
Kgosi Pilane went on to instruct the cops to bring Kwapa back to court as soon as possible.
“If you get his witnesses before the two weeks elapse you must bring him to court,” Pilane said.

Aa mme gone obstruction of justice e kgona go baa motho mo kgolegelong re tlhola re bona dibolai le dibeteledi di hilwe bail, talk about selective justice!!! Ke rata our traditional justice system mme nako tse dingwe oka lemoga gore go tletse kgobelelo

  9. Ma Special!!! Haah! I know these guys, and I don’t believe their story one bit. Gatwe ko Ramotswa ba kile ba pateletsa ma Zimbabwe go iphanya ba ba lebeletse. When they are frustrated they can be such a menace. The other time ba siilwe ke mo Zimbabwe ka fa Moraka Bar, ke ga ba batla go tshwara one other brother only because the guy was darker – eish mare the guy le ene o montsho thata; a bo a buwa Sebirwa/Setswapong. Ah ba ka utlwa ma special… If this guy’s (Tlamelo) character as remembered by UK Brat and Kellizo is true, I believe Tlamelo. Gape diganka ga di ke di tshoga in court… The thing is o ba tlogetse le legodu, and legodu le sadile le sia ba le tshwere… Ah! Guys ngwana o a golegiwa…
