Hashatsi bid friends farewell

MAFETENG – COLONEL Tefo Hashatsi bid his relatives and friends farewell indirectly before he was killed, thepost can reveal.

Although the Hashatsi family denies that their soon partook in the plot to gun down the army commander Lieutenant General Khoantle Motšomotšo on September 5, they say it was clear their son was aware of his impending death.

Hashatsi’s brother, Mokone Hashatsi, told thepost on Monday, two days after his non-military parade burial at his home in Mafeteng, that Tefo would tell them “he might not come back” when he went for work.

He also told his nephews “to pursue education so that you can raise my daughters in case I die”.

Mokone says his brother did not confide in the family about his fears but they sensed that he was aware of his imminent death.

He says what he meant when he used to say “maybe I will not come back” only became clear to them when he was finally killed outside Motšomotšo’s office.
