FRANCISTOWN: Letlhakane police are investigating a gruesome murder that took place last Thursday. Letlhakane police station commander, superintendent Michael Maphephu confirmed to The Monitor that they have arrested a 27-year-old Zimbabwean man in connection with the murder of a Motswana man aged 47 years.
Maphephu said the suspect handed himself over to the police and will appear at the Letlhakane Magistrates Court today (Monday). The Thursday incident follows another recent (September 9, 2021) shocking but similar tragedy in which a Moletemane Primary School teacher unleashed fury on his ex-girlfriend's new flame, a farmer, leaving him dead and his ex-girlfriend and colleague fighting for her life after the attack. The incidents are barely a week apart.
