FRANCISTOWN: An inmate prisoner, Kago Monato, who is facing multiple charges of rape, is suing the commissioners of police and prisons for P950,000. According to the plaintiff’s declaration, on December 1 in 2016, he was randomly selected to accompany other inmates from the Francistown Magistrate’s Courts for appearance.

“It must be noted that the plaintiff was not supposed to attend court on that day, but was randomly selected to accompany other inmates. On that day, he left with other inmates from the Francistown Centre For Illegal Immigrants (FCII) to court. The prisoners were transported in a government mini bus from the FCII to court. The mini bus was involved in a tragic accident.

The plaintiff asserts that one of the inmates Gobuamang Ntsuape attacked and choked the driver whilst the driver was at the wheel,” Monato’s attorney Kesegofetse Molosiwa said in his declaration.
