FRANCISTOWN: Parents in Letlhakane in the Boteti Sub-district are worried for the safety of their girls at a local school as they continue to be defiled allegedly by someone who should be taking care of them.

They recently relayed their fears to the police in the village, which led to the arrest and subsequent appearance before the Letlhakane Magistrate Court of Oscar Marumo, 41. This was last year. Marumo’s arrest and subsequent appearance in court shocked the residents of Letlhakane as they did not think that Marumo, who is a boarding school driver at Motsumi Junior Secondary School, could be the one accused of defiling learners where he works instead of protecting them. The Letlhakane police station commander, superintendent Michael Maphephu said Marumo was arraigned in court last year in connection with allegations of defiling three schoolgirls from Motsumi JSS where he was working as a school driver.

“The young girls who Marumo allegedly sexually abused last year between January and June were all aged 14. Marumo allegedly lured the victims by buying them some niceties and then requested them to accompany him to his place where he would later allegedly sexually molest them on different dates,” said Maphephu.
