KGOSI charged for NPF
Kgosi served on Thursday
The former director of Intelligence and Security Services (DISS), Isaac Kgosi has been charged in the ongoing P250 million National Petroleum Fund (NPF) saga, The Business Weekly & Review has established.
This publication is reliably informed that Kgosi was slapped with the charge sheet on Thursday (Yesterday). Information reaching this publication is that the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has indicted Kgosi for what they term “misleading government officials” when requesting funds from the NPF to build fuel storage facilities. Sources say Kgosi’s charge relates to diversion of funds from the NPF to Dignia services to procure military assets.
The state alleges Kgosi deliberately deceived officials when soliciting for funds for the construction of fuel facilities. Under’ Kgosi’s leadership DISS had requested the sum of P230 million. He later wrote to the Director of Energy Affairs requesting that the amount of P230million be transferred to Khulaco Pty Ltd.
Throughout the case, defense lawyer Kgosietsile Ngakaagae has always queried why Kgosi had not been charged as he says kgosi was central to the NPF looting.
At a time of going to press, it was not yet clear whether Kgosi will appear alone or with the other NPF accused.
When reached for comment, Kgosi’s lawyer, Unoda Mack said he won’t know because the DPP had to serve Kgosi first. Pressed for further comment he said, “What I know is that there has always been that threat.”
This publication also contacted DPP prosecutor Ernest Mosate who diverted the questions to the DPP director.
DPP director Stephen Tiroyakgosi had this to say: “I prefer to say no comment.” Kgosi’s phone rang unanswered.
