Promise not to hang him

Namibian authorities fear triple-murder suspect will be hanged in Botswana

Nambia will only allow triple murder suspect, Thomas Gilila, to stand trial in Botswana if the government assures them that if extradited and found guilty he will not face the ultimate death sentence.

This was revealed by State Prosecutor Goitseone Molefe when giving court status update this last week in a case which Gilila and co-accused, Kativa Diwanga are accused of killing Methulesi Mosoliwa, Sibongile Marks and their daughter Melissa Marks.

She said the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP) declined Namibia’s request and prosecution authorities for the two countries will meet next month to discuss the matter further.

The 34-year-old 1st accused Diwanga who is currently on bail appeared before Broadhurst Chief Magistrate Lenah Mokibe-Oahile last Thursday.

Molefe also told court that despite being promised by the investigating officer that the forensic results will be available in last week’s mention, they were told the results were not ready.

She pleaded with the court to set the next mention date as the results would hopefully be available.

Diwanga will be back in court on the 9th of June.

CO-ACCUSED: Diwanga
