Borolong white farmer in court



A white farmer, who recently killed five donkeys, two dogs and threatened to gun down the animals’ owner, appeared before a Lobatse magistrate on Friday facing four counts.

According to the charge sheet, the accused person, Andries Duplesis, 39, on the 25th of April threatened to kill Joseph Moswela by uttering: ‘ke tla go bolaya e bo ke go latlhela mo khuteng”, meaning ‘I will kill you and throw you in to the pit’.

The second count states that the accused assaulted the complainant by beating him several time with a short-gun, while the third count alleges that Duplesis willfully and unlawfully killed five donkeys belonging to Moswela by shooting the said animals with a gun.
The last count states that the accused person willfully and unlawfully killed two dogs with a gun.

President Khama recently visited Pitsane Village, where the incident occurred, and ordered the police to investigate the matter and bring the accused person before the court of law. During a kgotla meeting he held there, the residents complained to him about white farmers who are in the habit of impounding and locking up their livestock in their farms.

Duplesis is represented by Bayford and Botha Attorneys. His date of mention was set for July 4 and he was granted bail.
