  1. my my my my and these are the same folk who some citizens believe do what they do because they can not find a legitimate job – well based on their available funds/assets which are way way more than what the average citizen possess – I seriously doubt these folk are looking for legitimate employment ??????????????

  2. The Police force needs to have a department which investigate every charged persons bank account. The objective here is not only know if the individual have the money on account but to also know and observed who is going to put up the bail for the individual. I’ll tell you such investigate will give the law enforcement and tax department some very tangible resource.

  3. What become of the previous gun cases? Is there someone who will let us know whether some of these gun cases have gone to trial or adjourned as usual.
    Gun cases should be heard within 20 days. Hire a new magistrate for gu cases only.
    The bail is to lenient.

  4. @Bolo Byron with your fake name, we know this not bolo, so you created you account a fake name a d asking question. Don’t put my family name in you nonsense and find another fake name, douche bag.
