Johannesburg - Embattled Tshwane metro police deputy Ndumiso Jaca is expected to appear in the Pretoria Magistrate's Court on Tuesday.

Jaca faces nine charges, including fraud, driving a vehicle with unregistered number plates, false number plates, and police lights.

At a previous court appearance in May, the state was ordered to reveal further information relating to the charges.

Magistrate Graham Travers examined each of number of questions submitted by Jaca's defence team.

He ordered that some of the particulars be provided by the prosecutor at Tuesday's appearance, and turned down the request for others.

Travers said the state should reveal which BMW vehicle Jaca operated without the required number plates and registration.

“You have to tell us which car he was driving. Was it a red BMW? The accused needs to know which car we are talking about,” he said.

Travers dismissed questions urging the prosecutor to disclose where Jaca had driven the vehicle, the ownership of the car and who had fitted a blue light.

Jaca was charged in March following a report that he was driving a BMW Z4 with false number plates and police lights.

He was also allegedly seen on a Harley Davidson motorcycle with the same false registration number plate.

The Tshwane metro announced in January that Jaca's three months' special leave, which began in October, had been extended. - Sapa
