No breakthrough in finding head of a body found last month

The Botswana Police Service (BPS) have said that since the search for the missing head of Elizabeth Kerekang’s started over a month ago, they still do not have any clue to the whereabouts of the deceased’s head.

Deputy spokesperson of BPS senior superintendent Near Bagali told The Telegraph this week that the search for Kerekang’s missing head is still ongoing and they will continue working around the clock until breakthrough comes.

“It is true that since the death of Kerekang, detectives are still busy on the ground trying to gather as much evidence as possible regarding any information that could lead to the whereabouts of her head that has been missing for some weeks now,” he said.

He said there are two suspects that are still at large who are also allegedly linked to her death.

“At the moment we are not yet sure of their nationalities but once we make arrests we will be able to shed more light about them and their nationality,” he said.

He expressed optimism that the law enforcement will find the missing head and will arrest the missing suspects very soon.

“This is a very heartbreaking and sensitive matter therefore it should be treated with a sense of respect because of the nature of the case,” he added.

Bagali strongly dismissed allegations that suggest that the missing head might have been given to a certain traditional healer.

 Kerekang was allegedly murdered last month and her headless body was found dumped in a bush in Tlokweng village. A few days after the discovery, her boyfriend, Simon Badisa Kgowe, was arrested and charged with murder.

BPS is appealing to members of the public to assist the police with any information they might have which will lead to the arrests of the suspects and the discovery of the missing head.
