Family vows to take on Nthane

MASERU-THE family of a man who was allegedly killed by businessman Tšeliso Nthane last week says it is ready to fight for justice.
Nthane allegedly shot his driver, Mohapi Mohapi, after a truck he was driving overturned.
The lorry which belongs to Nthane Brothers, a construction company, was carrying earthmoving equipment.

Nthane appeared before the Buthat-Buthe magistrate’s court on Monday to answer a charge of murder.
The High Court released Nthane on M5 000 bail on Tuesday, with conditions that he should not tamper with crown witnesses.
However, Mohapi’s bereaving family says it will not take his murder lying down.

His son Mohato told thepost that the family is “just awaiting police investigations to be complete so that the family will decide on the next step to take”.
“My father did not raise a coward in me,” Mohato said.
He said his father Mohapi was a breadwinner in his family therefore they are left with nobody to run to during hard times.

“My father was more than a breadwinner in our family as he even took a good care of the family orphans, we have lost indeed,” he said.
“We have not yet received post-mortem results, we are leaving it in the hands of law enforcement agencies for now,” he added.
He said his father’s death came as a shock as they were expecting him to be there for everyone in the family.
“He was the one doing a lot of things in our family,” he said.

Mohato said his father worked for more than 12 years for Nthane Brothers, a civil engineering company.
“He worked there for so long until he was murdered.”
His father was shot at ’Moteng in Butha-Buthe by his employee Nthane, 62, of Sekamaneng in Berea.
Mohapi was Nthane’s truck driver who loaded abnormal road construction machines.
The police say the truck overturned in ’Moteng.

Police spokesman Superintendent Mpiti Mopeli said Nthane was arrested by the Butha-Buthe police last week on Thursday. “He is charged with the murder of Mohapi Mohapi who was one of his drivers at Nthane Brothers Company,” Supt Mopeli said.

Supt Mopeli said the suspect is believed to have gone to ’Moteng after receiving a message that his truck had overturned with its load.
“He allegedly called the deceased and talked to him in private then after a while a gunshot was heard and the victim fell to the ground. He was taken to a hospital where it was said that he had died,” he added.
