2011-03-07 00:00

A 25-YEAR-OLD Congolese national will return to court today for trial after electronic goods valued at about R100 000 were seized in his flat in Pietermaritzburg’s central business district.

The suspect was arrested a week ago on suspicion that all the goods were stolen. Police spokesperson Warrant Officer Joey Jeevan said the young immigrant, Akili Ndahetwa, is believed to a member of a large crime syndicate operating in the city. She said Ndahetwa appeared in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court last Monday and was denied bail.

The list of goods, which were found in a Fleming Street flat, allegedly included 38 cellphones, four digital cameras, two video cameras, three projectors, a Lenovo laptop, a DVD player, a CD player and a large Sony Bravia plasma television. — Witness Reporter.
