Budding famo artiste gunned down

MASERU – AN aspiring young famo artiste, Ngaka Mahao, 32, was fatally shot at Ha-Toloane just a few days before Christmas.
Mahao was in a taxi with other passengers when he met his untimely death.
Police spokesman Superintendent Mpiti Mopeli confirmed the incident.

He said no arrests have been made yet and the police are still continuing with their investigations.
“We are tracing the suspect because he was seen with him. It is just that his name is not known,” Supt Mopeli said.

He however said the suspect could be identified because he shot Mahao where witnesses were watching.
Witnesses said Mahao was in a group of passengers travelling in a taxi.

And when the taxi arrived at Ha Toloane, the suspect stopped the taxi and went to a nearby car and brought a gun.
When the suspect came back to the taxi, he fatally shot Mahao and sped off in a car that was parked by the road side, one witness said.

Rethabile Mosotho Chakela Mokete, who is the leader of a famo group called Terene which Mahao was a member, said the death of Mahao has left them in great shock.
“I was taking Mahao as my son,” Chakela said.

He said Mahao was gunned down after he had just released a new track (CD).
Mahao is survived by his wife and two children, a boy and a girl.
He will be laid to rest on January 12 at his home in Ha-Rannakoe in Mafeteng.
