Sebina arson: accused gets forensic report

FRANCISTOWN: The prosecution yesterday handed a forensic report to Mgcini Ncube, a Zimbabwean man accused of burning two houses in Sebina and asked the court to remand him. Ncube, 34, is alleged to have burnt two huts valued at P4,000 on August 9 2013.

Said prosecutor Jalome Somolokae: "The purpose of this mention is to update the court on the status of the matter.  "We have received the results of the forensic report from the laboratory and served the accused with a copy of the report.

"Investigations in the matter are still not complete. We apply that the accused be further remanded."

Ncube pleaded with the court to grant him bail. He said that he had witnesses who could testify that he did not burn the huts. He said: "I was with some people when the huts were burned. They should be called to tell the court that I am innocent." However, Senior Magistrate Thebeetsile Mulalu told Ncube that he would get a chance to call his witnesses during trial to prove his innocence. Mulalu declined to give Ncube bail and set a date for mention on October 23.

The public gallery was empty this time around save for journalists who had come to cover the case. It was very much unlike in Ncube's initial appearance, when residents of Sebina and surrounding villages came to court in droves to see the face of the person who they strongly believe had terrorised them for months.
