Old Naledi Police Station commander Superintendent King Tshebo says he is too surprised that Old Naledi criminal kingpin Thanana Kebonang who is supposed to be in jail for a conviction which was originally murder then reduced to manslaughter and sentenced to 10 years at Court of Appeal as well as two years for car breaking is back on the streets and committing crime again.
“ I am telling you I am very surprised that this has happened. Kebonang is supposed to be behind bars for the crimes for which he was sentenced. I think something which I currently do not know has happened and I think the people who can provide you with such information are the Prisons Department where he was imprisoned “, he said.
Tshebo also confirmed that they are currently looking for Kebonang in connection with store breaking in Gaborone West where clothes and money running into thousands of pula were stolen.
“Yes we are tracking him down as we speak for store breaking in Gaborone West. The little evidence we have picked so far points to him,” he said.
Kebonang was initially sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for murder by former High Court judge Gabriel Rwelengera for having stabbed a woman to death in Gaborone West on grounds that he had not intended to kill the deceased who apparently died from heavy bleeding to the stab wound on the thigh. Prisons Department officials refused to comment.
