Middlepits police have confirmed the death of a 20-year-old woman who tragically died on Thursday evening when a dilapidated mud hut wall collapsed on her. It is alleged that the young woman had visited her boyfriend at Bogogobo village, about 5 kilometres from Middlepits in Kgalagadi South when the tragic incident occurred. Her parents who did not know her whereabouts after she left home last Saturday, only learnt of the tragedy through the police. Middlepits Police Station Commander, Superintendent Kebadire Mmopi, said they received the report at around 1900 hrs after the woman was taken to the clinic. “It was reported that the young woman left others going to a neighbouring traditional hut whose thatch was removed the previous day. The hut wall was destroyed and only one side was left with a door frame. It happened that while passing by a strong rush of wind blew, collapsing the wall on the young woman,” sadly explained the station commander, further advising the parents to take care and be concerned about their children’s whereabouts. Though people tried to assist removing the rubble from the victim, it was a little too late as her head had sustained serious injuries. An ambulance was called and the woman was rushed to Middlepits clinic where she was certified dead.
