Shakawe police are investigating a case in which a 41-year old man was allegedly murdered by his 28-year-old brother. Station Commander, Superintendent Goitsemodimo Molapisi told Global Post in an interview that the suspect had a misunderstanding with his girlfriend on that fateful day.

Molapisi noted that the elder brother intervened in an effort to reconcile the two lovers. “While trying to mediate, the suspect allegedly slapped his elder brother and he fell into a chair,” Molapisi said. The parents of the siblings intervened to calm the situation and they just took the incident for granted. Molapisi explained that the following day the elder brother was rushed to Shakawe Primary Hospital where he later passed on.

Molapisi revealed that they managed to arrest the suspect and he is due to appear in court facing a single count of murder. The police chief advised relatives to always resolve family disputes amicably rather than resorting to violence.

Still in Shakawe, a 22-year-old woman was allegedly gang raped by three men on her way back from a drinking hole. The victim met six men on her way back home at night. “One of the suspects dragged her to the nearest bush where he allegedly sexually assaulted her without protection.”

Molapisi added that other two men joined and took turns in raping the victim and later fled the scene. The victim managed to identify two of the suspects. Molapisi expressed optimism that they will arrest the suspects in the near future.

Furthermore, he says they have arrested a 40-year-old woman for allegedly burning her boyfriend’s house to ashes. The boyfriend had ended the duo’s relationship. Molapisi revealed that property valued at P13,850 was damaged.

In Letlhakane, a 1 year and three-months-old baby girl died after being bitten by a snake. According Station Commander, Superintendent Michael Maphephu, the toddler was sleeping on the floor while her parents were sleeping on the bed when the incident occurred. “The parents were awoken by the child’s loudest cry and upon interrogation they found out that she was bitten by the serpent,” Maphephu noted. The toddler was rushed to Letlhakane Primary Hospital and she was confirmed dead upon arrival.
