Kwanele Mpofu (19) and her accomplices both aged 15 years allegedly stole Thembalethu Mulambo’s briefcase containing more than $4 000 cash, two smart phones and his particulars.

Mulambo allegedly met Mpofu at a city hotel last Monday evening and the two agreed to spend the night at Mpofu’s house in Cowdray Park suburb. When they were at Mpofu’s house, her two accomplices came to the house and allegedly stole the briefcase and disappeared

The trio last Friday appeared before Western Commonage magistrate Mr Lungile Ncube charged with theft. They were not asked to plead and were remanded in custody to February 8.

Prosecuting, Mr Petros Shoko said on Monday last week, Mulambo met Mpofu at a city hotel and the two agreed to spend the night at Mpofu’s house.
