INNOCENT: Tuduetso Loeto

Rumours of a woman’s private part found in food brings business to its knees
“Like a madman who throws firebrands, arrows, and death, is the man who deceives his neighbor, and says, “I was only joking!” The book of Proverbs 26:18-19 in the Bible rightly describes what happened at the Gaborone bus rank recently.

Unfounded allegations that a piece of cooked human genitals was discovered in a customer’s plate of fast food (take-away) almost put the new market at the bus rank out of business.

In fact five employees lost their jobs as business went down within a matter of few hours after somebody started joking about and spreading rumours that human flesh was found in a plate.

“People stopped buying food not only from the said stall but from the whole market. We suffered great loss due to the unfounded allegations. It was all lies!” exclaimed the deputy chairperson of the new market committee, Geoffrey Zikhale, 36.

It all started on Friday and the rumours could not be traced to anybody but Moffat Kefitlhile, a 24 year old hawker at the bus rank who was caught name calling and passing the malicious remarks about employees of one of the vendors at the food markets Tuduetso Loeto.

TAKING THE BLAME: Moffat Kefitlhile

“He called my staff witches who cook women’s private parts,” said  Loeto. She said when Kefitlhile made the remark she had retired home after a busy day.

“I received calls, people enquiring about the alleged piece of a woman’s private part which was found in the food! I thought it was only a joke, but the following morning when I arrived at the busrank people started acting funny. They gave me queer stares and we received very few customers from Saturday. It was then that I realized the gravity of the rumour and went to report Kefitlhile to the Police,” lamented Loeto as she counted her losses.

When business continued to decline, Loeto said she had no option but to let go five of her 13 employees as she was going to fail to pay their salaries at the end of the month.

“From 930 customers a day we have gone down to around 17. You can see how great the loss is,” chipped in the deputy chairperson.

Kefitlhile who said he has a police case of defamation and spreading malicious lies apologized to the public in an interview last week.

CONCERNED: Geoff ery Zikhale and Shillah Madala

“I was only repeating what I heard in the grapevine. I made the remark not knowing that it could be harmful. It wasn’t my intention to mislead the public. As a matter of fact the same tuckshop in question is where I buy my daily lunch and I still do,” Kefitlhile who was seemingly remorseful contended.

However Borakanelo station commander, Modisa Gabatshwane claimed the case does not exist.

“We have no case against Kefitlhile and neither has anyone reported having seen a cooked human organ in a plate,” he said.
