Police in Sehithwa are investigating a murder case in which a 29-year-old man of Kagisano Ward in Kareng allegedly killed his girlfriend’s other lover with a knobkerrie on Monday.

Sehithwa Police Station Commander Superintendent Nshaki Mabophiwa confirmed that they received a report from their colleagues at Kareng Police Post about the incident, reported by the suspect’s friend on the evening of the same day.

The suspect had reportedly told his friend that he went to the deceased’s house where he found his girlfriend with the other man. The suspect then chased the girlfriend from the house, before engaging in a fight with the 33-year-old deceased.  It was during the fight that he reportedly hit the deceased with a knobkerrie.

Mabophiwa revealed that the suspect is said to have thereafter fled the scene and went to tell his friend about his suspicions that the girlfriend’s lover might have died.

He said police officers immediately went to the deceased’s house where they indeed found his body lying motionless on the floor and knobkerrie suspected to have been used to murder him also in the same room. The deceased was then rushed to Letsholathebe II Memorial Hospital where he was confirmed dead.

Mabophiwa indicated that they then embarked on a search for the suspect who was later that night found at their cattlepost (Tshabadipuo) and was taken into police custody and has since been arraigned before the Maun Magistrate’s Court.

Meanwhile the police boss has expressed disappointed about the incident, noting that that they recently conducted a workshop addressing issues of gender based violence that are of great concern in his policing area especially in Kareng village. He revealed that so far they have registered two cases of gender based violence in Kareng and one at Somelo.

The workshop was held on the 23rd of March in collaboration with other stakeholders such as the Directorate of Public Prosecution (DPP), the village chiefs and Women Against Rape who addressed the community on issues of GBV.

He said it was a drawback that just a few days after the workshop, another GBV incident occurred.
