Court revealed that on June 24, 2016 Ncube and two others not before court at Mokolodi village stole a silver iPhone 6s valued at P8,500 and a PlayStation 3 game console worth P2,900. The goods were valued at P11,400 belonging to Goolam Nabi Mustapha and there was use of violence to obtain such properties.

Ncube’s case was last Wednesday reinstated after the prosecution withdrew it in November following his disappearance without a trace for the whole of last year.

For the prosecution, Peter Simisani told the court that Ncube failed to obey his bail conditions and in the process failed to appear before court when required to do so.

Simisani told the court that when he was granted bail on July 20, 2016 Ncube was given conditions to follow, but did not abide by them, absconding appearances, which led prosecution to withdraw the matter. 

“Whilst on bail, Ncube continued to commit a series of offences with the recent matter recently registered at Broadhurst Magistrates Court on January 8, 2018 and due for mention on January 22. I am pleading with this court to further remand the accused person in custody because he is a flight risk,” Simisani said.

The State alleges that Ncube, together with Samson Leatlame, 37, Nonofo Nthantsi, 31, Innocent

Moagi, 37, on January 5, 2018 at Chinese Galaxy Steel at Phakalane industrial site, stole from the company cash amounting to P20,000 and a CCTV system.

The quartet are facing four counts of armed robbery and one count of cruelty to animals after they poisoned two dogs belonging to the Chinese before they robbed them.

The Investigating Officer (IO) in the case, detective Senior Superintendent Sergeant Marapo, the deputy divisional CID officer for South Central told the court before Magistrate Wotho Lechani that they have established that Ncube’s passport is fraudulent.

Marapo said the names and the photo on the passport belonging to Ncube but the passport number belongs to one Luke Ndoro aged 52. He said following suspicions that Ncube’s passport might be fraudulent he went to Tlokweng border post to check its authenticity and discovered that the passport number belongs to Ndoro and not Ncube.

He, however, told the court that the copy of the accused person’s fingerprints and copy of his fraudulent passport have been sent to Interpol Harare to check his true identity.

“Court is awaiting response from Interpol Harare and will then assess your case. You will in the meantime be further remanded in custody until January 25, 2018 pending a bail ruling,” Lechani said.
