Isaac Kgosi finally in court for NPF

Following lengthy demands by defence lawyer, Kgosietsile Ngaakagae, to have Isaac Kgosi charged for the infamous looting of the National Petroleum Fund (NPF), the former head of the Directorate of Intelligence and Security Services (DISS) has finally been roped in to join other suspects.

Kgosi is expected at the Village Magistrates court tomorrow at 8.30am for his first appearance.

He joins other big names entangled in the NPF saga such as former Minister Sadique Kebonang and his twin brother- Lobatse High Court judge Zein Kebonang, businessman Bakang Seretse and his former business partners at Kgori Capital, Alfonse Ndzinge and Sharifa Noor, suspended Botswana Energy Regulatory Authority director, Kenneth Kerekang and his wife Mpho Kerekang and civil servant, Tshepo Bojelo .

Other accused persons are Mogomotsi Seretse, Raging Bull, M & B Proprietary Limited, STM Holdings, Kago Stimela and Leomog Proprietary Limited.

According to court papers, around May 2019, NPF’s P250 million was transferred to the DIS for construction of fuel storage tanks.

The funds’ intended purpose was however changed and instead, it was used to purchase anti-poaching equipment allegedly in Israel.
