BDP mp's threat to kill row
MP's: Arone & Majaga (L-R)

Arone and Majaga reported to police in fight over yellowbone

Botswana Democratic Party (BDP) legislators, Bagalatia Arone and Polson Majaga may soon find themselves in court for allegedly threatening to kill a man for his girlfriend.

The threatened man, Mogae Lekau, opened a threat-to-kill case marked CASE CR NO: 472/05/2017 at Gaborone West Police station on May 14th.

Particulars of the case indicate that the incident happened at night, just a day before the report was made.

This was after Lekau, who had allegedly warned Arone to stop seeing his girlfriend, received a phone call from an aggressive sounding Okavango MP who is said to have used life-threatening words against him.

It is alleged that drama started with Arone proposing love to Lekau’s girlfriend, a buxom yellowbone beauty seemingly in her mid twenties, sometime back in March and proceeded to shower her with presents and lunch dates before Lekau found out.

Speaking in an interview this week, Lekau said, “ Talk to the police and not me. I did report both Arone and Majaga to the police after they harassed me and threatened to kill me.

The Police are handling the matter so call them for more information and leave me alone,” said Lekau before he hung up the phone.

According to a source close to the case, Majaga allegedly uttered the words “ke tlago bolaya saan, o bata eng mo braeng yaaka.” (Ill kill you, what do you want from my brother?”

The Voice has also been leaked short messages allegedly sent by Arone to Lekau apologizing for the phone call and for the advances he made on his girlfriend.

Reached fro comment Majaga said. “I do not know anything about that. Please go to the relevant office for a comment.”
