Police plead for public assistance


Police are appealing for public assistance to identify a man who was hit by a car on Saturday morning while crossing the road along Mogobane near Lekgwapheng cattlepost.

The deceased's body who is suspected to be in his 30s, is currently at Bamalete Lutheran Hospital mortuary in Ramotswa.

“He did not have any identification in his possession. We do not know if he is a Motswana or not. The deceased is coffee in complexion and is about 1.68 metres tall. The deceased had sustained injuries on his head and body, but had serious head injuries,” the Deputy Divisional Traffic Officer for South-Central, Senior Superintendent Boiki Mojalemotho.

Mojalemotho said the deceased met his fate when trying to cross the Mogobane road by Lekgwapheng cattlepost. He pleaded with members of the public to contact Ramotswa police to identify the deceased.

“We are still tracing his whereabouts. We have decided to take his finger prints to Omang office to check his identification,” Mojalemotho said.
