Jaca back in court to face 9 charges

2012-06-05 08:09

Johannesburg - Embattled Tshwane metro police deputy chief Ndumiso Jaca is expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Jaca faces nine charges, including fraud, driving a vehicle with unregistered number plates, false number plates, and police lights.

At a previous court appearance in May, the State was ordered to reveal further information relating to the charges.

Magistrate Graham Travers examined each of number of questions submitted by Jaca's defence team.

He ordered that some of the particulars be provided by the prosecutor at Tuesday's appearance, and turned down the request for others.

Also allegedly seen on Harley

Travers said the State should reveal which BMW vehicle Jaca operated without the required number plates and registration.

"You have to tell us which car he was driving. Was it a red BMW? The accused needs to know which car we are talking about," he said.

Travers dismissed questions urging the prosecutor to disclose where Jaca had driven the vehicle, the ownership of the car and who had fitted a blue light.

Jaca was charged in March following a report that he was driving a BMW Z4 with false number plates and police lights.

He was also allegedly seen on a Harley Davidson motorbike with the same false registration number plate.

The Tshwane metro announced in January that Jaca's three months' special leave, which began in October, had been extended.

      Of course they don't have to pay it back. They were all victims remember - this is their way of making the whites pay for the ills of apartheid. The fact that most of the whites that are left had nothing to do with it and are not wealthy does not even matter.

      Bless you, Bos, but it is not the 'whites' that are paying for the malgovernance of the ANC - indeed, it is the whole country, but MOSTLY the majority poor, who are MOSTLY black. Yes, the fat may be getting thinner (metaphorically), but it is the thin that are dying (literally). Verily speak out against the ills of corruption, but do not allow self and prejudice to cover your eyes.

    What a pitiful state this country is in. And on top of the obvious 20 years of failure, we have to suffer racist remarks when simply calling for some sanity and normality. Africa surely is the tragedy of the Century when you consider the potential.

    Dear South Africans, we have to vote these fools ASAP !!!

  • Bless Boswell - 2012-06-05 09:10

    And I suppose he's on full pay? And now Motlante want to push etolls through because they can't pay the bills? I think I want a job in government. Then I'll misbehave, get suspended and laugh all the way to the bank.

      Good idea, Bless, you'll either get a golden handshake or be promoted. It's a no-lose situation for the crooks.

    A Harley, apparently several BMW's - one of them red - the vice president of the Sopranos Bikers Club...the boy is a serious player...or so he thinks. He's ranked number 23,811 of noteworthy people in Tswane..and noteworthy for all the wrong reasons. Go and get a job Jaca!

    I have an idea. Why dont we vote for the ANC again this year and see how low can we we go. Maybe we can beat bobs record

  • tricia.sutherland1 - 2012-06-05 10:22

    he's a let down not only to the people of Tshwane, but to his subordinates and he has broken nearly every rule pertaining to the Soprano's Biker Club Regulations and he's a VP - not cool dude - casting a huge dark cloud over your club. wonder if his club has put him through any disciplinary hearings. he's not a biker's backside.

    special leave , he should have been brought before an internal deciplinary enquiry , found guilty and fired ,from there the state should have prosecuted him for the false number plates and blue lights, why do they always put these guys on special leave pay them full salaries, sounds like another robert macbride saga, one thing this govt likes to do is waste hard earned tax payers money,from october on full pay, he is laughing all the way to the bank, instead of them following procedure they will have less paper work and stream line the dead wood
