Thieves attack and steal stolen diesel from other thieves
Two alleged thieves recently ‘worked’ for nothing as their loot was grabbed by other thieves while they were trying to hide it.
It is reported that on April 13 this year Nyasha Shumba, 34, and Mike Thuku, 62, smuggled 20 litres of diesel from their work place in Gaborone and drove to a bush around St Joseph College to hide it.
While they were still driving around ton locate the right spot to hide the loot, three men attacked them, took the diesel and three cellphones which were in their possession.
But before the other thieves could get away, a fight erupted as the duo was not prepared to just let go without a fight. During the exchange of fists, Thuku was stabbed twice in the stomach with a sharp object while Shumba was left with few broken ribs.
Oblivious to the kind of condition he was in, Thuku is said to have ran towards St Joseph’s teachers’ quarters to seek help leaving his friend behind.
When the teachers insisted on calling an ambulance he refused, fled and headed home to Mogoditshane.
It is reported that when he got home his condition had deteriorated and asked his wife to call the police and the ambulance.
He was then rushed to Princes Marina hospital where he remained in intensive care unit (ICU) for eight days.
When he came out of ICU, the police were notified and after interrogation Thuku finally came clean and narrated the whole story to them.
A warrant of arrest was then issued and search for his accomplice began. Shumba was found and arrested at his house in Gabane.
The two were brought before the New Naledi Customary Court and pleaded guilty to charges of theft.
The case was heard before Kgosi Molefhe Koitsiwe who when passing judgement took into consideration Thuku’s health and his old age. He slapped him with two months in prison wholly suspended for 2yrs provided he did not commit a crime of the same nature.
His partner in crime, Shumba was sentenced to 6months in prison wholly suspended for two yrs and three strokes on the buttocks.

  1. THIS IS A TRUE SIGN THAT INDEED CRIME DOES NOT PAY GUYS. IMAGINE, YOU NEARLY LOST YOUR LIVES FOR 20L OF DIESEL! THE OLDMAN ENE O TLHABISA DITLHONG ELE RURI!

  2. Now do you see what health workers have to deal with on a daily basis? Thuku delayed going to the hospital and if he had died while the doctor was trying to save him, the poor doctor would be in trouble. Mme e le gore motho o tswa ko Kgale a goga mala a le ko ntle a bo a ya mogoditshane, a feta bl.9 clinic a bo a tla a ya sepateleng a setse ka 2L ya madi mo mmeleng. Is that fair?
    As the saying says, there is no honour among thieves. Nna ke re o e ka bo e rile ba sa ntse ba lwela dizil ya bogodu tladi ya tswa kwa ya ba ratha , ba tshwarwa le molelo!! There are so many things to do in life to be able to get something to eat. I can never understand why someone has to steal and even risk their life defending stolen mechandise. It is disgusting to say the least.

  3. This quiet ridiculous , 62 yrs old man, I can’t believe this. Mme ba dirilwe sentle. They nearly lost thier lives ke 20L ya diesel. E mpolaisa Chinamo kgang ya teng. DILO DI A DIRAGALA. KE BOLAIWA KE NTATEMOGOLO WA 62.
