Members of the public have been asked to help identify 71 cattle suspected to have been stolen in some parts of Southern and Kweneng districts. Appealing to the public in a statement today, Botswana Police Service (BPS) Relations Officer Assistant Superintendent Selebatso Mooketsi announced that the cattle, predominantly heifers, are currently held at a kraal in Sesung Village Kgotla.

"These cattle bear different brands and ear tags, and some of the brands appear to have been tampered with," Selebatso stated. The initiative encourages community members who suspect their cattle might be among those recovered to visit Sesung Village Kgotla for viewing and identification. Selebatso assured the public that the viewing process is open every day of the week, from 0730hrs to 1630hrs.

"It is crucial for individuals to bring proof of ownership such as brands, certificates, or any identifying documents along with their national identity cards. Witnesses who can attest to the ownership of the cattle are also encouraged to accompany the owners," Selebatso added.

Selebatso assured that all necessary measures are being taken to ensure a transparent and efficient identification process. "The seized cattle will remain under police custody until their rightful owners are identified and verified, we are dedicated to making sure stolen cattle go back to their rightful owners. We ask anyone who has missing cattle or information to come forward and help us with this effort," Selebatso remarked.
