Bogus plot sale lands man in jail

An alleged habitual fraudster accused of selling tribal land around Molepolole village illegally has been sent to jail to await trial for a charge of obtaining by false pretence.

Denying him bail, Moleplolole magistrate court noted hat the court could not turn a blind eye to Tefo Kgosidintsi’s alleged three criminal activities.

Kgosidintsi of Mokgalo ward was accused of obtaining by false pretence after he advertised a ploughing field on Facebook and eventually sold it although it did not belong to him.

Kgosidintsi’s co-accused, 47-year-old Rashid Dimpho Rannanao of Hatsalatladi village has been released on bail. He stands accused of being an accessory to crime by posing as the owner of the field while Kgosidintsi was the sales agent.

The duo are accused of defrauding Shehzah Rusdia Motani the sum of P360 000, 00 by selling him a ploughing field that they did not own at Tlhale lands.

The bogus sale took place on February 2nd, 2021 after Motani responded to a Facebook post from Kgosidintsi and contacted him to go and see the advertised field.

However Motani had a rude awakening when he went to show his father his new acquisition only to be told by the rightful owners who were on the property at the time that it did not belong to Rannanao.

Motani then called Rannanao to explain but instead he told them to wait for him on the property but then switched off his phone and never turned up.

The matter was reported to the police and the alleged scammers were arrested and charged.

“It is not safe for the Kweneng region and community at large to be seeing the accused freely roaming the streets and the likelihood of him committing other offences whilst on bail is very high,” said the magistrate as he sent Kgosidintsi to await trial in jail.

Kgosiemang s next mention was scheduled for May 21st, 2021.
