Nata police are investigating a case in which a 36-year-old Manxotai man’s body was found along Xarikachoo road on Monday morning.
The still fresh corpse was discovered on the roadside at Xarikachoo, a cattlepost between Manxotai and Sepako villages.
Nata Station Commander, Vincent Pitseetsile confirmed they are following up on the incident.
“We received the report around 0745 hours from a passer-by that there is someone lying in an uncomfortable manner along the road. Our police officers immediately attended the scene where they found the man’s body in a pool of blood with visible injuries on the head.”
The top cop told The Voice the man was immediately taken to Nata clinic where he was certified dead.
“We do not know whether he was involved in a fight or he fell from a car. We are still investigating, we do not know what could have transpired,” admitted the police boss, adding the deceased’s close relatives have been notified.
Staying in the town, on Wednesday morning at around 4 o’clock, a bus carrying passengers from Gaborone to Kasane hit a donkey five kilometres out of Nata.
Pitseetsile closed by stating that no one was injured and advised people to drive carefully to avoid accidents.
