A 36 year-old man from Dinokwane ward in Serowe who was arrested last year September for threatening to kill Crime Intelligence boss, Nunu Lesetedi is expected back in court before the end of this month, Serowe Police Station commander Superintendent Molefhe Molefhe has said.

Ramapulane Selato, who goes by the name Chaff Ramz Selato on Facebook, posted on his page that people should help him search for and kill Lesetedi for harassing people and for taking their belongings and money.

‘Ke kopa le mpatise monna yo, o tsamaya a tseela batho madi le dithoto tsa bone. Fa le mmona le mmolae’ so goes the Facebook page that appeared on September 4. In an earlier interview, Supt.Molefhe Molefhe told The Midweek Sun that since the matter involves social media, they were forced to use modern technology to trace the source and if they find the suspect, would charge him with threat to kill.

This week he said that they were still continuing with investigations and might prefer a different charge after Selato told the police that he posted while under the influence of dagga.Lesetedi said he was notified of the circulating Facebook post by his daughter. “I followed it on Facebook and went to report him. He was found and arrested. He said in his post that I take people’s money and dagga and that I should be killed,” he said.  Asked about his safety, he said that he was alert. “I can never say I’m safe but the job has to be done. I just have to keep my eyes open,” he said.

BUSHIRI HELPED US

The torment that Keloneilwe family in Goo Kodisa had been subjected to for over a year is now a thing of the past.This is thanks to the intervention of Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, if what Kgosi Moalakwena Keloneilwe says is anything to go by.

He told The Midweek Sun that he went to see Prophet Shepherd Bushiri in Pretoria on April 12 and was told by Major One, as Bushiri is known, that all is well. “When I arrived at his church, I met him and showed him The Midweek Sun article about the incident and he laid hands on it and said ‘It is done.’ “He didn’t say much,” said Keloneilwe. He said that the Enlightened Christian Gathering leader also gave him anointing oil.

“He also preached that when we pray in tongues, the anointing oil changes into the Holy Spirit and that it can do anything that we ask it to do. “He warned that if we don’t use it properly, it can be dangerous. But again, the prophet taught us that anybody can perform miracles,” said the tribal leader, who is also a cousin to the family that was tormented by the evil creature.

Kgosi Keloneilwe said that he was speechless when he arrived back home to find that government through social workers had instructed that the family move to Moshupa into a Village Development Committee house. “That same Monday, they moved to Moshupa which makes sense concerning what the prophet was saying that it is done.

The children have even gone back to school,” he said. He said that he did not tell his cousins that he was going to see Bushiri and only told them when he came back. The family has been tormented by an unknown creature, believed to appear in the form of a snake, a monkey the next minute and also a dirty doll.

In a previous interview with this reporter, the headman revealed that the children had been away from school for a year because the creature has torn their school uniforms into pieces. He also said that efforts to take them to school were made difficult by the fact that the creature throws stones at any car that takes them to school. It was also said that it threw stones at the children and slapped them if they dared go to school.
