Broadhurst magistrate, Babedi Mothuba, yesterday denied bail to six suspected members of a gang who alleged murdered a soldier in Mogoditshane in March.

The five accused; Aubrey Gobonwang (24), Mosimanegape Khumalo (22), Ithuteng Lucas (18), Boitshoko Boitshoko (18) and Ontiretse Sethole (21) are believed to be members of a gang that has been terrorising Mogoditshane residents.

Yesterday, the magistrate said the six could not be granted bail as they were facing serious charges. “The accused are facing serious offences of murder and two accounts of robbery and the chances that they will abscond are high. The gravity of the offences is also in consideration and it may also influence the accused to abscond as the seriousness of the offences mean serious conviction,” she argued.
