DCEO investigator shot

DCEO investigator shot

MASERU – AN investigator with the Directorate on Corruption and Economic Offences (DCEO) was shot and seriously injured by an unknown gunman last Friday. The investigator, Thabang Ntai, 38, is said to be recovering at Queen ’Mamohato Memorial Hospital where he is under tight police protection.

Both police spokesman Inspector Mpiti Mopeli and the DCEO’s ’Matlhokomelo Senoko confirmed the shooting.
Mopeli said according to a report received by the police, the investigator was driving into his home in Ha-Tšosane at around 10pm when two armed men pounced on him.

He said they ordered Ntai back into his car and drove to Motse-Mocha where they picked another man and drove away.
They covered his head and face so that he could not see where they were taking him.

They dropped him in Ha-Mapetla, near Ha-Abia, where they shot and left him there perhaps thinking that he was dead.
“He managed to crawl to nearby houses where people of goodwill took him to the hospital,” Mopeli said.

Senoko said Ntai sustained two gun-shot wounds.
“This is our first case of an investigator being shot,” she said.
