A DECISION on whether or not Windhoek self proclaimed Prophet, Jackson Babi, will be granted bail will be heard on Friday at the Windhoek Magistrate’s Court.
Babi was arrested last year on poaching and bribery charges.
On the bribery charge, Babi and one Ananias Ananias are alleged to have attempted to offer a police officer N$13 000 to make the charges against Babi in the poaching case disappear.
It is reported that police officers searching the cells also found a mobile phone in the possession of the accused.
Babi was initially arrested alongside seven other people on poaching charges.
This is his second bail attempt.
He was initially denied bail by Magistrate Linus Samunzala due to the seriousness of the offenses, public interest and fear of interference.
He subsequently challenged the ruling in the high Court, saying that the Magistrate misdirected himself.
Two rhino horns were reportedly found at Babi’s home in Windhoek’s Kleine Kuppe suburb.
Charges of possession of a firearm and ammunition were also added to the indictment.
