A 37-year-old Motswana man Steven Nyamadzabo was arraigned before Kasane Magistrate court this week for the alleged murder of a 30-year-old Zimbabwean man Tatenda Mupindo at Sesheke Bar in Kazungula on Saturday.

Kasane Senior Magistrate Wame Mosugelo, acceded to the request by the investigating office and the prosecution that the accused be further remanded in custody while investigations continue.

It is alleged that the accused person, Nyamadzabo who works as a Blockman at Heels and Houses Butchery stabbed the deceased on the neck with a knife during a fight that occurred at around 2345hrs at the said bar.

Confirming the incident, Kazungula Police Station Commander Superintendent Phetogo Philemon said that after receiving the report during that night, they rushed to the scene where they found the deceased lying unconscious near the A3 road in Kazungula. He stated that the victim was taken to Kasane Primary Hospital where he was certified dead by medical doctors.

Meanwhile, the Investigating Officer Constable Victor Maluke pleaded with the court to remand the accused person in custody as investigations were at the infancy stage, adding that he is currently busy collecting statements from the witnesses. He stated that currently, he has been able to locate one witness, adding that he was still to locate others for more witness accounts and statements.

Maluke said a further remand in custody for the accused was also in his best interest and safety given that the public was still angry and shocked by the incident, and may take the law into its own hands should he be released. He pleaded with the court to give him a month for to complete his investigations into the matter.

Public Prosecutor Orateng Ramoabi told the court that the matter is still fresh and its investigations are still ongoing, which would allow for the police to complete investigations.

The accused will appear in court on July 18, for status update.
