In one of disheartening gruesome murder cases in Molepolole village following the last month incident in which Magokotswane woman and granddaughter were killed, on Sunday morning a 34-year-old orphan from Ntloolengwae ward was also found dead dumped in a well.

The murder case was reported to the police after a certain man alerted that he met two youthful men at Mosanteng lands who informed him that they had killed one Karabo Keboletse and dumped him in a well.

Molepolole police station commander Superintendent Benedict Matlho confirmed that they were still on investigations and managed to arrest six suspects who were still being questioned.

“A certain man was taken by some men while on entertainment at the bar claiming they wanted to question him about their things he had taken and they allegedly ended killing and dumping him, his lifeless body is at the mortuary,” said the top cop

After the police received the information they visited the scene and managed to retrieve the deceased body from the well and took him to Scottish Livingstone Hospital where his lifeless body is still kept for post-mortem.

The Voice team on Monday afternoon visited Keboletse family and interviewed deceased girlfriend also the mother of his two sons 35-year-old Bonolo Ntsimako from Thamaga village.

Giving full details of the story Ntsimako sadly said “I have been with Karabo for 12-years, on Friday around past 7pm I left home for entertainment to Fairways with friends Poloko and Pearl.While there a certain man arrived and chatted with Karabo and I didn’t pay much attention they went to the car which we were shocked to find it leaving at high speed.”

Ntsimako then borrowed a phone to call her boyfriend and suprisely the phone rang once before it was switched off

Wondering what was happening she left with her friends trying to follow the car that went with Karabo, unfortunately the car vanished while they were following it and they returned home.

“Later after arriving home we found the police with the deceased aunt. I was informed by one of the relatives who was called at the depot that Karabo was found tied on a donkey cart by certain two men and they left with him. The police told us to go to their office to record a statement. The police went searching for the suspects before we left to Mosankeng where we only found the said donkey cart Karabo not there,” explained Ntsimako adding that fortunately the police managed to retrieve her boyfriend from the well with the help of a certain man who alerted them.

Adding on Ntsimako’s statement, deceased sister 37-year-old Tshiamo Keboletse said she received the traumatising news on Saturday early morning around past 2 after one Rabotsoma knocked at their place informing her that her brother was covered with a blanket and tied in a donkey cart.

Asked about Karabo’s character if they knew anything about the alleged stolen shoes, Ntsimako and Tshiamo however did not deny that Karabo used to steal people belongings.

“I heard such allegations about the stolen shoes after Karabo’s death, one of his friends called Beco staying in Thamaga who was recently released from prison visited him with a pair of shoes and asked him if he didn’t know anyone who can buy them. Karabo then took the shoes to one Tswinki who got interested in buying the shoes,” revealed Ntsimako.

Ntsimako further disclosed that the shoes allegedly belong to Tswinki’s friend who is the owner of the donkey cart.

“I don’t want to lie, when I started love affair with Karabo he was naughty, he survived by spending time in prison. I met him in Gaborone staying in a rented house with a group of seven boys and I advised him that we rent our own house, sometimes the police used to come to our place. He was once a suspect of house breaking but he later stopped that habit till we moved to Molepolole in 2020,” added Ntsimako.
