Former president of the Customary Court of Appeal, Kgosikwena Sebele is on his way back to the High Court to demand reinstatement and possibly damages for unlawful incarceration for two years. Sources close to Kgosikwena have confided that he will be finalising his suit this week.

Contacted for comment, Kgosikwena said: "I cannot comment at this stage, go and ask my lawyer he is handling everything". Apparently, the Department of Tribal Administration rejected Kgosikwena's application for reinstatement in preference of Kgosi Mothibe Linchwe of Bakgatla. Mothibe was reinstated last week to the chagrin of some members of the Bakgatla royal family. A heated meeting last weekend at Mochudi Kgotla revealed the hidden divisions in the Bakgatla royal house.

Kgosikwena's lawyer, Kgosietsile Ngakaagae has said he is still in discussions with the client and he will know sometime this week what course of action to take.  "At the moment, we are still discussing our case and what shape it should take. We will be meeting again this week and by then would know which route to take," he said. It is not clear how much Kgosikwena is demanding from the government, but Mmegi is informed the damages could run into millions of Pula.
