Why this country disgusts me - Another absolute shocker

SOWETAN: He said some of the crimes were committed while on bail and that there is no guarantee he might not commit more crimes should the court set him free.

The state further quoted newspaper articles showing that his last release on bail sparked a public outcry.

A fortnight ago, his wife Yvonne Mbatha had to get a lift back home after the couple’s 4.8 IS BMW X5 was confiscated by cops outside court after it was found to be using a licence disc that had expired on March 31 2007.

On the same day about 700 sympathisers rocked up in two buses and 10 minibus taxis chanting: “This man is innocent.”

SHOOT: It's interesting that his relationship was such with the police that he committed some crimes imitating the police, one assumes he got the police lights, badges and uniforms from police officers, and provided them later with a commission for their assistance.

SUSPECTED crime mastermind William “Mashobane” Mbatha was branded a liar as shocking evidence of alleged collusion between him and police emerged during his bail application yesterday.

The Pretoria socialite made headlines when he was arrested in connection with a string of crimes including car theft, housebreaking, possession of an illegal firearm and tax offences.

Apart from subsequently violating his bail conditions, the 36-year-old went on to commit more crimes, the court heard.

- He kept a cellphone and two SIM cards in his police cell.

- Police at the forensic laboratory in Pretoria destroyed CCTV footage showing a robbery in process involving him.

Mbatha was rearrested last month after one of his alleged victims saw his pictures in the newspapers and alerted the police.

It was sensationally revealed yesterday that police destroyed the video footage, further strengthening suspicions that the suspected criminal has high-ranking police officials on his payroll.
