Afternoon Drive with John Maytham

The Case of 'The Cabbage Bandit'

Guest: Djo Bankina Tshwane Metro Police officers have formally charged the “cabbage bandit” Djo Ba Nkuna, who planted vegetables on the side of the road to help his wife feed poor communities in the capital city. Nkuna has been at loggerheads with Tshwane Metro Police officers after they received a complaint about his vegetable garden. He was threatened with arrest if he did not desist with his cabbage patch activities, as they were against the by-laws in the City of Tshwane. The battle over the cabbage patch took a legal turn, as the police served him with a notice to appear in court, for allegedly interfering with municipal property.   Djo Ba Nkuna claims to have been served with a notice to appear at the Wonderboom Municipal Court on November 23, 2021.
