FRANCISTOWN: A man of Sepalola cattlepost in the Tonota sub-district was on Wednesday found guilty of murdering his girlfriend.

Justice Bashi Moesi returned a verdict of guilty against Cheleketo Pitso, 39 for the January 29, 2015 murder of Segamang Bantwaetse at Sepalola. Pitso, who was represented by attorney Isaac Seleka, had elected to give unsworn evidence during his trial.

When delivering his judgement, Moesi said that after Pitso killed Bantwaetse, he told Shimane Lepang, his neighbour, who heard the deceased’s young child wailing, that Bantwaetse was relaxing in their room when Lepang enquired about the whereabouts of Bantwaetse.
