On Saturday, two South African citizens were apprehended in Lephalale and charged with two counts of illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition. William Mpadi Maphoto, 30, and Eric Matlou, 42, were arraigned before the Village Magistrates court on Wednesday. In this article, we will be exploring who the suspects are in detail and the case against them.

Who are the Suspects?

William Mpadi Maphoto is 30 years old and from Lephalale. He is an unemployed man who was arrested for illegal possession of a firearm and ammunition. Eric Matlou is also from Lephalale and is 42 years old. He works as a driver for a local taxi rank. The police believe that he was involved in several armed robberies in the area prior to his arrest.

Robbery’s Case Details

The two suspects were apprehended after they had allegedly committed an armed robbery at a local store in Lephalale on Saturday afternoon. They were found in possession of two firearms which police believe were used in the robbery as well as ammunition which indicates that they had been planning to continue their criminal activities. When they appeared before court on Wednesday, both men pleaded not guilty to all charges against them but have since been remanded into custody until their trial date next month when the court will decide whether or not they are guilty of these crimes.

The cases of William Mpadi Maphoto and Eric Matlou serve as an important reminder that crime does not pay off and that any form of criminal activity should be avoided at all costs. It is also important to remember that if you suspect anyone of committing a crime, you should contact your local police department immediately so that they can take action to prevent further incidents from occurring. We will have to wait until next month to see how this case unfolds but it serves as an important reminder that justice will always prevail no matter what happens.
