Murder Suspect Appears In Court


A 22-year-old man of Kauree cattle post near Tsau village is set to be arraigned before the Maun Magistrate’s Court today (05th August) for the alleged murder of a 42-year-old man of Tsau village.

Xomae Xoma, whose arraignment was initially set for the 29th of July 2022 was postponed following his request for a Sesarwa interpreter. Xoma has since been remanded in custody after state prosecution pleaded with the court for his remand arguing that investigations on the matter are still at an infant stage.

Narrating to what led to the incident, Sehithwa Police Station Commander, Superintendent Nshaki Mabophiwa revealed that the deceased is said to have found the suspect together with his friends at one of the residences in Tsau and he jokingly accused the suspect of having many girlfriends consequently leading to a misunderstanding.

It is said that the suspect then in response allegedly stabbed the deceased with a sharp object on the chest and left him lying motionless in a pool of blood and fled the scene. The matter was then reported to the police who upon arrival rushed the deceased to Tsau clinic where he was unfortunately certified dead upon arrival.

According to Mabophiwa, the accused person was later arrested at his home in Kaure village on the 17th July 2022. “The police went in a search of the suspect and found him sleeping in his house at Kauree cattle-post and he confessed and showed us the knife he used to kill the deceased,” Mabophiwa revealed.

The accused person will appear on the 5th August 2022 for arraignment when the state is expected to present a Sesarwa interpreter as the accused person had indicated that it was his preferred language.
