Bad tempered murder suspect rejects Molepolole court

A suspected criminal who recently pleaded guilty to assaulting a magistrate in court has changed his plea to not guilty.

Accused murder suspect, 38-year-old Vincent Mogosi has also asked the Molepolole Magistrates’ Court to recuse itself from his matters.

His feet in shackles, Korae appeared before Magistrate Bame Ngaka last week Thursday.

He however interrupted proceedings to say; “ I have decided to change my plea after looking at the facts of the case. I also want all the four counts I have been charged with to be tried in a different court because I feel no magistrate in this court can give me a fair trial. I believe before the magistrates proceed with court sessions they conduct a meeting, may the case be moved to Village Magistrates’ Court or any other court.”

His submissions convinced magistrate Ngaka who quickly granted Korae’s application and referred the matter to the Regional Magistrate South for allocation to a different court.
