The Minister of Environment, Natural Resources Conservation and Tourism Tshekedi Khama is expected at Maun Magistrate Court on July 13 as a key witness in a forgery case against one Phillemon Kamogelo.
According to the particulars of the case Kamogelo on the 4th of November, 2015 forged a letter purporting that his application for category C license has been approved by the Tourism Licensing Committee to use Moremi, Khwai, Kachikao and Kasane routes, information he knew to be wrong.
Speaking in court, the state Prosecution officer Patrick Fani said trail cannot commence without Khama as he is a key witness in the matter. He said Khama’s absence was due to work commitments as such he requested another trial date.
For his part the defence attorney, Charles Tlagae requested the prosecution to tell Khama to be present in the next session. He said that if Khama fails to avail himself the defense will make an application for the case to be dismissed before court.
