Bagwasi went to search his house and found in his possession drugs that were brought before the court as exhibits. 

Tonoki said in his defence Kgowe claimed that the drugs belonged to one Thabo, but during the search police found drugs all over his house. 

“You claimed one Thabo came to you a day prior to your arrest and asked you to keep his parcels (which were two envelopes) and promised to take the following day, but never came back.  During trial you did not deny possession nor the knowledge of the drugs but just said one Thabo gave you the parcels and you failed to bring him before court,” Tonoki said when he found him guilty as charged on both counts.
