Teacher’s death gets Mochudi residents agitated

Tension in Mochudi is said to be brewing over the death of a teacher who was recently found dead, hanging from a tree about 35 kilometers away from Mochudi.

Information reaching The Telegraph suggests that a group is busy recruiting people to embark on a massive strike, as a sign of protest against the death of Shadrek Makobye, who went missing for almost two months before he was recently found dead hanging from a tree.

The group claims that people have been murdered but nothing had been done to ensure the safety of the public in Mochudi.

The group says that Makobye’s death will reveal all the mysterious deaths that were not solved with suspects still at large.

Emotions were high at Makobye’s funeral on Sunday with mourners convinced that the man could have been murdered.

The Member of Parliament for Kgatleng West Gilbert Mangole at the funeral accused the security agents of failing to detect plots before they happen.

He appealed to the public to be calm and not to raise their emotions.
During the burial ceremony, Phiem Makobye, the elder brother to the deceased, told the mourners that his brother was murdered and pledged about P10 000 to anybody who had information about the death of his late brother”.

He poured water on police statements that his late brother could have committed suicide.
However when The Telegraph asked the Deputy Paramount Chief about a plot to riot, he replied that “we are not aware of such a thing”.

“What I will request from the public is to remain calm and not to take the law into their own hands,” said Bana Sekai.

He accused the police of not doing enough during the search of the deceased.
Officer Commanding Mochudi, Senior Superintendent Seabo Maboka, said, “I am unable to comment on such accusations.”
