During his arraignment before Molepolole Magistrates’ Court this week, charged with a single count of murder, Seboro told the court he could not afford the services of an attorney so he was going to represent himself.

Prosecutor, Inspector Thema Marumolo pleaded with the court to remand him in custody since investigations were still at an initial stage, and police had not yet recorded statements from some of the witnesses.

Inspector Maromolo further indicated that although the investigating officer was not present in court to oppose bail but he was going to be available during the next appearance.

Seboro, who was arrested on the day of the incident, will be remanded in custody till next week, December 16th.
