AFTER briefly hearing evidence of one Crown witness in the trial in which two men are accused of the 2008 theft of M4 million from the First National Bank (FNB) Lesotho, High Court judge Justice Tšeliso Monaphathi on Friday postponed the matter to November 9.

The accused include Lehlohonolo 'Mote and Lehlohonolo Tsikinyane who is a former employee of the bank. The two allegedly stole the money on October 26, 2008.
They were initially charged together with Lisema Ramokhoabane and Seemane Qhoai, but the two have since passed on.
They were also charged along with Sekhonyana Ntlhabo and his son Monaheng, but charges against them have since been withdrawn as they have turned state witnesses.
