Mbuso Moloi, who has come to be known as the ‘Mercedes Woolies Looter’ in the past few weeks, appeared in court again today.
He spent the weekend in custody at Westville Correctional Centre, following his appearance in the Durban Magistrate’s Court last Thursday.
That time around, the matter was adjourned until today for bail consideration.
TimesLIVE reports that after his appearance today, Moloi will plead guilty to several charges:
It was revealed he intends to plead guilty to the charges, which also include trespassing and operating a vehicle without a corresponding number plate.
The court heard the self-employed tenderpreneur owns two vehicles and lives with his parents in Cowies Hill, near Pinetown.
‘Tenderpreneur’ certainly isn’t a job title you see every day.
Moloi was granted R5 000 bail, and if he wants to leave KwaZulu-Natal, he will have to inform the investigating officer.

The exact value of the goods Moloi stole still has to be determined, said prosecutor Ronitha Singh, but you can be sure it wasn’t worth all of this.
The state had alleged Moloi had two previous pending cases, but defence attorney Mfanafuthi Biyela dismissed the allegations and said his client had no previous pending matters.
The parties involved will return to court next Thursday (August 12) for finalisation.
