This is according to a court transcript handed to the Namibian National Assembly on Thursday by Albert Kawana, the minister of home affairs, immigration, safety and security.The transcript is from proceedings in the Karasburg magistrate’s court, where David was tried for crossing the Orange River in a canoe near the Vioolsdrif border on June 12 2020, when cross-border travel was banned due to the Covid-19 lockdown.It is for these reasons that a deterrent sentence must be put on the accused to deter him and would-be offenders,” said Kangira.David also claimed this illegal crossing was to scout a potential property development in Namibia.David also claimed this illegal crossing was to scout a potential property development in Namibia.According to former state Security Agency director-general Arthur Fraser, David was the mastermind behind the burglary at Ramaphosa’s Phala Phala farm on February 9 2020, when he and accomplices allegedly stole at least $4m hidden in a sofa.Nolo Moima 'David was travelling very lightly' In a confidential report, former Namibian police commissioner Nelius Becker mentions a “person of interest” involved in David's movements across the border.David has yet to be arrested in connection with the alleged theft which, according to Fraser, was covered up amid attempts to recover the money by the presidential protection unit.This “person of interest”, a Johannesburg business owner who asked not to be named, told TimesLIVE he was asked by a friend to transport David to Vioolsdrif, where he was expected to attend a meeting.

Long before Fraser’s June 1 affidavit named David as the mastermind, the alleged burglar was playing a central role in a scandal in Namibia.“I only knew his name as Imma.Long before Fraser’s June 1 affidavit named David as the mastermind, the alleged burglar was playing a central role in a scandal in Namibia.After he crossed the border with two luxury watches, a gold chain, and Namibian and US currency equivalent to about R488,000, David allegedly bribed former National Fishing Corporation of Namibia (Fishcor) CEO Paulus Ngalangi and a police sergeant, Hendrik Nghede, to facilitate his illegal entry.The trial of Ngalangi and Nghede is expected to resume in July after they pleaded not guilty.He said they booked into a lodge for the night with the expectation that he would take the person back to Pretoria the next day.David pleaded guilty to immigration and customs offences and paid a R20,000 fine after telling the court he had three children, aged 12, 8 and eight months, and that he was married.David pleaded guilty to immigration and customs offences and paid a R20,000 fine after telling the court he had three children, aged 12, 8 and eight months, and that he was married.His lawyer, Percy McNally, told the court David was employed by a property developer in Fourways, Johannesburg.'He is the nicest guy' A close friend of David, who asked to remain anonymous, said people who knew him were shocked by what had emerged in Fraser's affidavit and since.'He is the nicest guy' A close friend of David, who asked to remain anonymous, said people who knew him were shocked by what had emerged in Fraser's affidavit and since.

“(David) completed matric in 2002 whereafter he enlisted in the SA Army.He was in Abu Dhabi, Iraq, Mali and Libya doing peacekeeping work,” he said.A very easy-going, down-to-earth and chilled guy,” he said.He was in Abu Dhabi, Iraq, Mali and Libya doing peacekeeping work,” he said.The SA National Defence Force has never conducted peacekeeping operations in any of these countries.According to McNally, David did not plan to cross the Orange illegally.He sent me a bill that he paid at Sneaker Cartel nightclub, where he spent R106,000 on seven bottles of Armand de Brignac Ace of Spades Gold Brut and two hubblies.“(David) was on his way to Swakopmund to scout some development and he did not see himself returning to Pretoria after he was informed that he could not enter Namibia due to Covid-19; therefore he chose to enter Namibia at another point of entry,” he said.“(David) was on his way to Swakopmund to scout some development and he did not see himself returning to Pretoria after he was informed that he could not enter Namibia due to Covid-19; therefore he chose to enter Namibia at another point of entry,” he said.“I am a collector of watches, and by the watches that he wore, which included a $150,000 Hublot, you can see he can afford things.

“It was not a wise decision.” TimesLIVE has a copy of the nightclub bill, which contains David’s name and signature.(David) now has to face the consequences of his impulsive actions which is negatively affecting him in terms of his feelings and money.” After his arrest David tested positive for Covid-19 after reaching Windhoek, and prosecutor Yeukai Kangira said he had placed the entire country at risk.I chatted to him recently and when I mentioned the burglary he laughed a lot about it, but he never confirmed or denied it.” After his arrest David tested positive for Covid-19 after reaching Windhoek, and prosecutor Yeukai Kangira said he had placed the entire country at risk.“(David) further cost the Namibian government taxpayers' money as he had to be quarantined alongside all his traceable contacts from Karasburg up to Windhoek.It is for these reasons that a deterrent sentence must be put on the accused to deter him and would-be offenders,” said Kangira.Hawks sources said Arthur Fraser's affidavit attempted to illustrate the assets Imanuwela David bought with the proceeds of the Phala Phala burglary by including a Facebook picture uploaded by David in September 2018, 17 months before the alleged burglary.Hawks sources said Arthur Fraser's affidavit attempted to illustrate the assets Imanuwela David bought with the proceeds of the Phala Phala burglary by including a Facebook picture uploaded by David in September 2018, 17 months before the alleged burglary.
