The Judicial Service Commission (JSC) has agreed to grant Justice Zein Kebonang special leave for the duration of the P250 million National Petroleum Fund (NPF) case.

This was a unanimous decision taken last week after Kebonang and others appeared for mention at the Broadhurst Magistrate’s Court. Kebonang and his twin brother former Cabinet Minister and Member of Parliament (MP) for Lobatse Sadique Kebonang were added into the new charge sheet. 

The twin brothers are facing a pile of criminal charges amounting to over P130 million. They joined Seretse, Kenneth Kerekang, executive director of Botswana Energy Regulatory Authority (BERA), Mogomotsi Seretse, younger brother to Bakang and Kago Stimela.

The case involves the NPF’s P250

million that was transferred to the Directorate of Intelligence and Security (DIS) Services for construction of fuel storage tanks, before being diverted for the purchase of military hardware from Israel. 

Charges against Botho Leburu, a director at Khulaco Management Services have since been dropped. The accused are reportedly facing 65 charges ranging from money laundering, theft, abuse of office, giving false information to person employed in the public service and uttering a false document.
