Dimpho Kemoitse is accused of using two Okapi knives to stab his then girlfriend, Monyana Mbusi to death at Block 5 in Gaborone.  The deceased was a Form Five student at Masunga Senior Secondary School at the time.

Yesterday, Kemoitse told Justice Godfrey Nthomiwa that he was yet to discuss a plea with his lawyer.
