GRANTED BAIL: Kwalabatle and Masubi

Village Magistrate Lindiwe Mokgoro has this week granted robbery suspects Thato Kwalabatle and Jonathan Thembekile Masubi bail.

The accused persons are facing one count of robbery after they allegedly robbed one Kefilwe Jane of her valuables at knife point.

Court heard that on the 12th of November Kwalabatle, 22, and Masubi, 24, at Gaborone West robbed Jane of her car keys worth P2 810 and a Huawei cellphone worth P3 900.

Kwalabatle told the court that he intended to engage an attorney in the next mention while Masubi said he would conduct his own defence. Both men pleaded not guilty to the charge levelled against them.

The State Prosecutor, Inspector Phale, told court that the police are done with the investigations and therefore did not oppose conditional bail.

Magistrate Mokgoro granted the accused persons bail on condition that they bound themselves with P5 000 each and provide two sureties who would also bind themselves with the same amount.

She also ordered them to report to court when required to do so and not commit any crime while on bail.

The two will be back in court for mention on the 30th of January 2020 or the 2nd of December if they fail to comply with the bail conditions.
