SELEBI-PHIKWE: The Umbrella for Democratic Change (UDC) has appointed a Francistown law firm to assist victims of a BCL Mine accident, which claimed the life of one underground worker and seriously injured others four months ago.

The party’s parliamentary hopeful for Selebi-Phikwe West, Moeti Mohwasa told a rally on Sunday that the law firm would investigate the accident and help the family of the late mine worker sue the mine in the event there is evidence of negligence. The firm would also seek better compensation for the deceased.

Bohiwemang Mogowe died following an explosion while working underground at the Selebi shaft while his colleague on the same shift was left critically injured. The deceased’s family complained that they did not receive satisfactory support from the mine and even alleged that Magowe was working while his contract had long expired.
