Kedibonye Diphatse

Bokaa murdered woman’s family speaks of years of abuse at hands of the accused
Relatives of a 31-year-old Bokaa woman whose body was found in a septic tank two days after she disappeared are blaming the police for her death.
Kedibonye Manti Diphatse’s body was found last Tuesday after a lengthy search at her employer’s home by the police, her relatives and members of the public. Her boyfriend of more than 15 years, Leabua Ipuseng Matlhape (36) has been arrested and charged with murder.
Mochudi Station Commander Onneetse Gagogosha confirmed the incident saying the suspect, Ipuseng Matlhape is in custody and will appear in court soon.
When The Voice visited Diphatse’s relatives in Bokaa on Tuesday we learnt that the murdered woman had been suffering abuse from the father of her four children, two of whom are dead, since they met and impregnated her whilst she was a student at Letsopa CJSS.
“Throughout their life together they were always fighting. The boy beat her regularly. We tried to get both parents together to help them make peace but in vain. We eventually reported the matter to the police twice but they never took any action. If the police had taken some action my niece would probably be alive today. If the police cannot protect us we do not know who will,” said the murdered woman’s uncle, Mmuseng Clarkson Bodika.
He went on to say even on the day Manti was reported missing the police took their time and only arrived late afternoon.
Bodika’s sentiments were echoed by Manti’s elder brother, Odirile and elder sister Mosidi who said the police failed to intervene even when Matlhape throttled Manti with a pair of trousers and left her for the dead.
“We reported two incidents and after the police failed to act Matlhape went around the village boasting that he was untouchable as he was friends with the police. The police should have saved my little sister from this beast,” Mosidi said.
“I am hurt and will never forget that had the police acted my sister would probably be alive”, Odirile told The Voice.
Commenting on allegations of police negligence police boss Gagogosha said; “I am aware of only one case which was reported on June 14 this year. We charged Matlhape with common assault. It’s unfortunate that Manti died before we could take the case to court.”

Why bamasika bane ba sa repotele kgosi kgolo ya kgaolo gore a romelela mmolai yo mophato oo bogale go mo ruta go tshela le batho pele a bolaya. this is to say we can always blame the police (fact),but i beg to advice that if one system isnt useful why not seek use of effective ones jaaka mephato ya kgatleng. this guys can do whatever it takes at their own will with no restrictions except from kgosi kgolo. I wish KKgolo will do something coz this happened in his teritory and involves his subjects.

  26. people i write this having experienced the same problem,sometimes even our parents gets confused not knowing how to help as also scared,but at least the relatives tried,of which the police had to at least do something,like hand her over to the counselling people at the same time doing their part dealing with leabua whatsoever they call the bastar…..end line police must really wakeup and head for the best.REST IN PEACE DEAR.

  27. m nt suprised at al,they only no gone go nna mo dikepesing ba otsela,if i recal wel when W Bush visited our nation he came with his own guards and a bullet proff car…y? he new dat hs destintion z nt free nd the so called police and much far less beta thn ub security.i hate all the police and i wish the governmnt to suck all thos involved.

  28. aow! shame may your soul rest in peace dikgang tse ditsewa motlhofo cause oyou report just because mapodise baitse motho yoo moripotang and they take it simple mapodisi a dira dilo ka botsala kana go itse motho

  29. kante why we people re rata go pega innocent people melato e eseng ya bone?let us say the truth bagaetsho,Leabua killed Manti and his mother nor any of his parents has contribution in dat.It is not that they were not cooperative,the family,relatives and parents to Manti were very angry to them and even made them hate those people.Bane ba sa ba batle,and they no they wanted to kill Leabua’s mother bare ke ene a reileng ngwana wa gagwe are a mmolae.If leabua’s relatives were not cooperative,Who bought the casket?who bought food and that cow who brought it?Dat monday Manti was killed kaone,o letse ko diterakeng da whole wikend,and her aunt Mosidi knew everything.Stop accusing ada people.Yes wherether Manti was cheating or not Leabua had no rite at all to kill her.He deserve to be killed.He killed the mother to his own children.May her soul rest in peace.

  30. Bribery is the key to lock nd unlock cops ass. We must stop it,govt is paying this guys to do their work and the nation is paying them to sit on their balls only to come after something has happened. Ba ne ba itse hela sentle gore Leabua ke mang and none of them wanted to look bad on him cauz o ba jesa sengwe week in out thats why a ne a keteka ngwana wa batho malatsi otlhe. Mapodisi are not not eager to do their job coz they are paid on daily basis for doing nothing.
