Pregnant murder accused bailed

The Village Chief Magistrate Lenah Oahile-Mokibe granted bail to a 31-year-old pregnant woman charged with murder of her boyfriend.

The heavily pregnant Matshidiso Sesike, whose medical scan showed she was due the day after her court appearance, was on Friday granted bail so she can go give birth outside prison.  When giving bail, Oahile-Mokibe said she was giving her bail on condition that she report to court on the set dates and she communicates extensively with the investigation officer.  She further said the accused should inform the police after the due date and when she will be available to start appearing in court.

“The court has decided to give you bail and allow that you deliver at home, but you should keep in touch with the police so they are able to communicate with court and set dates for the trial,” instructed the magistrate.
