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. Masilo who did not show up in his last court appearance was supposed to verify allegations of abuse by the police and prison officials. Ngakaagae raised allegations of abuse on his client during the last mention, but his absence meant that Masilo could not go ahead with his testimony. “I ask the court to postpone this matter for another date because Ngakaagae is not here today and nothing can go forward without him,” said Masilo before the court.

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