C'llr off the hook for Kablay threats


Due to lack of evidence, the prosecution has dropped threats-to-kill criminal proceedings against former Letlhakeng Sub-District Council chairperson and also councillor for Mantshwabisi, Meshack Tshenyego.

For a while now, the Member of Parliament for Letlhakeng/Lephephe Constituency, Liakat Kably and Tshenyego have not been seeing eye to eye after Kably had laid threats-to-kill charges against the latter in what was viewed as a political fight.

On Monday, the Molepolole Magistrate's Court heard that prosecution has decided to discontinue criminal proceedings against Tshenyego due to lack of evidence. Initially, the prosecution had indicated that Councillor Tshenyego had on July 8, 2022 threatened Kably by indirectly uttering the following words to nominated councillor, Anderson Molebogi Mathibe: “Mosadi wa ga Liakat le bana ba gagwe ba tsile go lela, mosadi wame le banake le bone batla lela. E tlare rele mo meeting, ka re tsena meeting mmogo, ketla mo tlolela a bo ke mmolaya (Liakat’s wife and children are going to cry and my wife and children will cry, too. We will be attending a meeting together and I will jump on him and kill him).
