FRANCISTOWN: A 30-year old woman allegedly went berserk and allegedly torched a 25-roomed barracks housing 100 soldiers at BDF Area S Camp here last Saturday, Mmegi has learnt.

Details are sketchy regarding what set the woman, who is believed to be the wife of a junior army officer, off on her pyrotechnical rage.  However, Mmegi is reliably informed that the woman is a Guidance and Counselling teacher at Pandagala Community Junior Secondary School in Tutume and the lawful wife of a soldier whose names are being withheld for the time being.

Unconfirmed reports say the woman visited her husband's place of abode but did not find him because he had reportedly left for his home village of Tamasane near Palapye. Hell reportedly broke loose after a friend of her husband's allegedly gave her the keys to his apartment as usual when her husband was not there. A source says the suspect has been admitted to Nyangabgwe Referral Hospital for psych analysis. Assistant Commissioner Christopher Mbulawa of the public relation unit of Botswana Police Service has confirmed that the incident happened on Saturday.
