Kgosi has the last laugh again


Barely a week after the High Court ordered the State to return ex-spy chief Isaac Kgosi’s seized guns, the latter has the last laugh again. In the latest development, the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) withdrew a charge today (Tuesday) against Kgosi in which he was accused of obstructing DIS officers and support staff.

Kgosi allegedly verbally assaulted and obstructed X and Y, officers of the DIS, on or about February 18, 2019, at Extension 6 from executing their duties. Kgosi had always denied the allegation, claiming that on February 18, 2019, he had gone for physiotherapy when the two officers followed him to the clinic, where they aggressively demanded the receptionist takes them to him.

Before the withdrawal of the charge today, Kgosi was initially facing three counts that included taking photographs of officers as well as the identity cards of the officers engaged in a covert operation undertaken by the DIS, information of which was published in the Mmegi newspaper. The obstruction allegation was the only one remaining in the case after other charges were dropped last year.
