Moshupa Police de-links stabbing to gangs

Moshupa Police Station Commander Superintendent Oneetse Gagogosha has denied allegations that notorious gangs believed to be Merubisi and Matsetsenkane from Thamaga have relocated to his policing area.

Gagogosha however said only few incidents have been reported to Moshupa Police Station. “We have only two cases where a boy was stabbed with a knife at Dladleng Entertainment Club by a group of boys from Thamaga.  “The other case involves a group of boys who attacked a man with a softball bat. The cases haven’t proceeded because the victims have not yet recovered from their injuries,” said Gagogosha. “We just hear people saying that gangs are terrorising the village. The information is misleading.

“Government media also blew things out of proportion through their news after a kgotla meeting that was held a week ago,” Gagogosha said. According to a source that wanted to remain anonymous, people are concerned with the rising number of violent incidents taking place in the village.
