A South African citizen Francis Ngubani, (52), is facing charge of being found in possession of stolen vehicle.

Ngubani appeared before Francistown Magistrate Thebeitsile Molalu on a single count of being in possession of stolen goods at after he was arrested at Ramokgwebana boarder gate last week.

According to the charge sheet, Ngubani originating Zola Extension 1, Xuma Street Soweto of South Africa was on August 13th nabbed by the police driving a grey Isuzu KB motor vehicle with a registration number HCB 461 MP reported to have been stolen outside Botswana.

While the police said that investigations on the matter are still at infancy stage, the accused pleaded to be granted bail so that he cross-over to South Africa to inform his family about his situation. Magistrate granted him bail but asked to pay P1500.00 for his release.

But before granting him bail, Magistrate Molalu wanted the accused to assure the court that he will not abscond from court when he is summoned.

“What guarantees that you will come to court once you are summoned? I’m concerned about how you will attend court sessions. If you were to be given bail will you be able to pay P1500?” asked Magistrate Molalu.

Ngubani said that he will be available as at when the court wants him because his place of residential is known to the police.  “I will not abscond. I will come whenever I am asked to come to court because i have a residential place, and a family to be traced whenever I miss court sessions. I also ask this honorable court to set a date which will suit me as I have to see a doctor end of August,” he pleaded.

The case is set to continue on September 17th at Masunga magistrates court.
