Babusi Chiameka of Tsabong is awaiting closure in the matter in which he is suing the Attorney General Chambers for damages. Chimaeka was severely assualted by four fellow inmates while serving a sentence for livestock theft in December 2010. The men pounced on the unsuspecting man with scissors and razor blades.

They assaulted Chiameka before leaving him for dead. Mmegi investigations have established that the matter was reported to prison officials who opened a file with the Tsabong Police. Two days later, a medical report from the Tsabong hospital revealed that the victim suffered multiple lacerations.

In an exclusive interview with Mmegi, Chiameka revealed that the four men randomly attacked him. “I struggled to free myself from the attackers who held my hands tight behind my back. I got several cuts on my head, elbow, rib and belly,” he narrated. He said no prison warder was nearby during the attack. Only  a shout by one of the prisoners caught the wardens’ attention.
