Police used back door evidence - Judge

FRANCISTOWN: Justice Zibani Makhwade has condemned police for the way they collected evidence in a certain rape case.

Justice Makhwade was passing judgement in an appeal case in which the appellant said the police had met the so-called independent witness when the accused person was pointing out the crime scene.

Lesego Keitsheletse was jailed for 10 years after allegedly dragging a woman to a river where he raped her.   "As part of the prosecutions case, they called a member of the public who testified that she met the police together with the appellant going towards the stream and she was invited to go and witness," said the judge.
