FRANCISTOWN: The High Court yesterday granted bail to a University of Botswana (UB) student and his accomplice charged with murder. Justice Zibani Makhwade granted the UB student, Misani Machola and his co-accused Mbiganyi Macha bail after their attorney Kesegofetse Molosiwa made an urgent application on their behalf.

The duo is charged together with Thabo Machola and Leabua Lekorwe for allegedly killing a Francistown Senior Secondary School student, Tsholofelo Madziba, in Block 3 in 2015. They allegedly stabbed her with a sharp object.

The state also alleges that the quartet robbed Madziba of P449 before proceeding to rob Ookeditse Nlanda of a mobile phone worth P500 after they killed Madziba on that fateful day. Nlanda spent a few days in Nyangabgwe Referral Hospital (NRH) after the gang allegedly assaulted her with a hammer on the head.
