While her co-accused have been remanded in custody awaiting a ruling on February 6, a traditional doctor and forth accused in the Kopong gruesome murder case, Kebaleboge Ntsebe (43) have been given less strict bail conditions.

Ntsebe who is accused alongside Oageng Letsholo (47), Leufty Kosie (48) and Outlwile Aston (49) has been on bail since last year following a two months incarceration. The quartet is accused of killing Barulaganye Aston, who was a teacher at Kopong. They allegedly acted together with a common purpose in the brutal murder of Aston who was found without some body parts. Last September Magistrate, Jobbie Moilatsimo granted Ntsebe bail on conditions that she pays P3500, provides two assurities, reports at Mogoditshane Police station and not interfere with witnesses.

Appearing before the Broadhurst Magistrate's Court yesterday, Ntsebe asked the court to soften her strict bail conditions. She wanted to stop reporting to the police everyday but just appear in court for proceedings. Even though the state prosecutor Seeletso Ookeditse opposed to the request Magistrate Moilatsimo acceded to the fourth accused’ pleas. Moilatsimo said Ntsebe can at least report to Mogoditshane police station or Metsimotlhabe once a month. “There is no reason why she should stop reporting to police rather she can check in at Mogoditshane or Metsimotlhabe every month,” Moilatshimo indicated.
