Convicted robber, Thabo Masilo, appeared before the Village Magistrate Court with his lawyer Kgosietsile Ngakaagae nowhere in sight yesterday.

The court could not proceed with the case without Ngakaagae.  Therefore the matter was postponed to March 31.

He told the court that efforts to reach Ngakaagae were futile as his phone was unreachable.
