State commits Montshiwa murder case to High Court

The Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) will this week commit to trial the case of the murder of former Fairgrounds Holdings CEO to the High Court.

Investigations into the killing of Michael Montshiwa have been ongoing while the accused have been appearing at Village Magistrate’s Court.

The investigating officer in the matter, Sergeant Marapo confirmed that the matter is ready to be committed to the High Court for trial.

“Investigations have been wrapped up and we are confident that the matter is ready for trial,” he said.

Initially when the news of murder of the CEO broke two suspects were fingered and with Gaborone based lawyer, Modise David, emerging as

the alleged mastermind.

David, who is facing charges of murder and theft, was allegedly the last person to communicate with Montshiwa minutes before the CEO’s fatal shooting in Block 6, Gaborone on October 18, 2015.

Marapo had testified before that David was Montshiwa’s attorney and that the lawyer had withdrawn P245,000 from an account entrusted to him by the deceased for the purchase of a plot in Mogoditshane. 

David has been out on bail after his arrest in December 2015.
