This came after the Member of Parliament for Gaborone North, Haskins Nkaigwa, asked the Minister of Defence, Justice and Security what is being done to address the high rate of crime in Tsholofelo East and Tsholofelo West (Tsholefelo Extension). 

Nkaigwa wanted to know the number of criminal activities that have been reported in the area from 2015 to date. 

“The highest crime that happened in 2018 is breaking into motor vehicles and theft, which police recorded 69 cases, and from January 2019 to date, 10 cases were recorded. This was followed by burglary and theft with 49 cases and house breaking with 37 cases in 2018 and in 2019, they recorded six cases in the two offences,” Minister of Defence, Justice and Security, Shaw Kgathi said.

one of the places with notable incidents of crime in the Broadhurst area. To address this phenomenon, in addition to the normal police patrols and attending to call outs by members of the public in the area, special task teams focusing on crime-prone areas have been deployed and operate at various times.” 

According to Kgathi, these include intelligence-focused teams guided by collected information and data analysis, bicycle teams focusing specifically on the Tsholofelo Extension. 

They comprise of four officers, mobile patrols carried out by the Special Support Group assigned for the greater Broadhurst area both during the night and day. 

He said there are no plans to establish a satellite police station in the Tsholofelo Extension area as it is sufficiently serviced by Broadhurst Police Station.
