Story of when I went to the court for the first time

Fri ,04/12/2009

When I was in the university in South Africa, one day, my car was broken in by two guys along the road near the university.

Security guy came to me and told me that they have caught the guys trying to steal the car red handed while they were going on about it inside my car. For that I had to go to the court one day to testify few things. So I went.

Upon arrival, I found myself inside a small court room with judge and the two guys who were supposed to be the accused of attempt to steal my car. My testimony was simple and it only took 5 mins.

After about 30mins into the proceeding a large table was brought inside the room and on top of it were many items like laptop computers and clothes books etc. They were stuffs stolen from the other victims around the university. From there on, they were asked one by one whether the item on the table did belong to them or not.

You can obviously guess that the things became a bit of comedy when the items like pents , glasses were asked and put them on to prove that the items were indeed theirs.

It was only almost at the end , when a small thin green book was held high and asked if it was theirs. They replied without hesitation “Yes”. But alas, it was an ID book…..!

An ID Book…. of someone else.

The court had 15 mins break after that and we all went outside to have a giggle. I just can’t forget that day. It was so funny.
