FRANCISTOWN:  At the age of 57 years, just five years shy of the statutory retirement age, Tapudzani Pester Gabolekwe has packed his stuff and retraced his steps back to the village of Gweta, where he originates.

In the midst of the coronavirus that is ravaging humankind, Gabolekwe, former deputy commissioner of police (support services) surrendered his service uniform on April 1, 2020 as a top cop. He was a career police officer who enrolled as a police constable in 1980 and rose steadily to the top.

 He stealthily returned home unnoticed when the villagers were still blinded by the lockdown that has curtailed their movement in this era of the coronavirus pandemic.
