ANC COUNCILLOR’S WARRANT OF ARREST
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. |
