Bela-Bela self-confessed drug dealer, Frans “Bomba” Motaung, has had charges against him withdrawn.

The Bela-Bela Magistrate’s Court on Friday 2 November on Friday slapped his co-accused, Maria Lebogang Maunatlala, with a conditional fine of R3 000.

A total of R1 500 of the amount was payable immediately, while the other was conditionally suspended for 12 months.

According to the office of the clerk of court, Motaung’s case was withdrawn due to lack of evidence, when the latter and his co-accused appeared for sentencing before the Bela-Bela
Magistrate’s Court on Friday 2 November.

Earlier in the year Motaung dropped a bombshell at an anti-drugs public meeting, asking the community to forgive him for his alleged role in the distribution of drugs in the township outside
Bela-Bela.

Motaung, better known as “Bomba”, voluntarily took to the podium during an event hosted by the Ikageng Youth Centre at Forever Resorts on Tuesday 3 July.

He further committed to throw his lot behind efforts to push back against the proliferation of drugs in the township.
