Man Fined For Illegal Gun Possession

JWANENG: Emmanuel Khumosera of Tsonyane was last week fined P500 for illegal possession of a firearm and a live bullet. The facts of the matter are that on December 21, 2014, police acted on a tip off that the accused had a gun at his home village in Tsonyane.

They managed to arrest him and he led them to Tsonyane where he indeed handed the said gun to the police. The instrument was taken for examination and the results proved positive that it was a gun and a live ammunition and he failed to produce a license. He pleaded guilty to the charge and told court that he did not have any legal defence to possess such.

In his mitigation, Khumosera asked for forgiveness and pleaded with court to be merciful as he has worked cooperatively with the police since the matter was reported.
