FRANCISTOWN: An inmate prisoner, Kago Monato, who is facing multiple charges of rape, is suing the commissioners of police and prisons for P950,000.

“It must be noted that the plaintiff was not supposed to attend court on that day, but was randomly selected to accompany other inmates.

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.
