Member of Parliament (MP) for Lobatse, Thapelo Matsheka’s spouse has refuted damning allegations made by the State that her husband consulted with numerous traditional doctors to avoid being arrested in relation to Tlotso Karema’s murder.

The MP’s wife, Veronica Matsheka, made an urgent application demanding her husband’s immediate release from the Directorate of Intelligence and Security’s (DIS) custody. She denied that her husband ever admitted to such utterances as alleged by the spy unit.

On Saturday during court proceedings before the Lobatse High Court, the State attorney representing the DIS and others, Kgotso Botlhole told the court that according to the court documents Matsheka (Thapelo) indeed consulted traditional doctors and that he conceded to those allegations.
