FRANCISTOWN: In a case that may be caused by marital problems, a boilermaker at Kopano Copper Mine at Mosetse allegedly threatened to kill his wife.

The State alleges that Mokhululi Moffat (40) threatened to kill his wife Tiroyamodimo Moffat on January 9, 2022 at Somerset location by sending her a cellphone message that reads, “Ke tlile go go bolaya wena ke a go bolelela” or “I am going to kill you, I am telling you” or words to that effect.

When Mokhululi appeared before Magistrate Thabang Chokwe on Tuesday for arraignment, Olga Khumoetsile from the Directorate of Public Prosecutions (DPP) applied for the accused to be remanded in custody. Khumoetsile requested that plea in the matter be reserved because investigations were still at their infancy. She then called the Investigating Officer (IO) to give reasons why Mokhululi should be remanded in custody.
