A WAR­RANT of ar­rest has been is­sued for Nel­son Man­dela Bay ANC coun­cil­lor Bongo Nom­biba, above, who was con­victed of fraud and money laun­der­ing ear­lier this year.

Nom­biba had been sen­tenced to five years be­hind bars but had un­til the close of business on Fri­day to sub­mit his papers pe­ti­tion­ing the Supreme Court of Ap­peal for leave to ap­peal but failed to do so. Leave to ap­peal against his con­vic­tion and sen­tence was dis­missed by Gra­ham­stown High Court last month. A bail con­di­tion set by the High Court was that he file his papers in the SCA on or be­fore Fri­day.

Nom­bimba was found guilty of pock­et­ing R20 000 in do­na­tions meant for a non-gov­ern­men­tal or­gan­i­sa­tion. |
