Retired police officer shot dead

MASERU – A RETIRED police officer and successful businessman was shot dead at a bar on Sunday night in Ha-Mantšebo, about some 30 kilometres south of Maseru.
The officer, in his late 40s, was in the company of three other men when the gunman stormed the bar and opened fire.

The retired police officer died on the spot together with another man while two others were rushed to Queen ‘Mamohato Memorial Hospital.
The incident happened around 9.30pm.

Police spokesperson Superintendent Mpiti Mopeli confirmed the incident.
“One was treated as an out-patient while the other is still battling for his life at the hospital,” Supt Mopeli said.
Sources said the perpetrator was stalking one of the victims all the way from South Africa where he was working as an illegal miner at one of the disused mines.

The source said the retired police officer was only targeted after he had identified the gunman who then went on a shooting spree to “wipe out the evidence”.
Supt Mopeli said no arrests have been made yet and police investigations are still continuing
