A 22-year-old man is currently in police custody after murdering and burying his own father at Gabane village .
The young man handed himself to the police yesterday with Mogoditshane station commander Russ Letsebe confirming investigating the case. However he was not in a position to disclose much on the matter saying investigations on the case just began.
Meanwhile Gabane residents are reeling in shock at the brutal killing of the old man by his own son. It is alleged by some that the body of the old man was exhumed by authorities yesterday. “It was so horrific, that young boy butchered his own father, we watched as pieces of his body were taken out,” claimed one woman who says she attended Roman Catholic Church with the old man.
She shared that the man was a loving father who adored his son so much and they do not understand what could have led him into committing such an evil act. Others have gone out to reveal his identity on social media defining him as a man who loved jogging every morning and always wore a warm friendly smile.
Church distances itself from Pastor who livestreamed his suicide
Head Pastor at Metsimotlhabe Holiness Union Church France Koosimile has distanced his church from Phenyo Godfrey who committed suicide live on social media a week ago. Speaking to this publication this week, Koosimile said Godfrey was never a Pastor at Holiness church as assumed by many.
Godfrey, who goes by the name Bishop P Godfrey on social media, allegedly shot a video of himself committing suicide on Sunday evening. According to a few friends and those close to Godfrey, the deceased was from Molepolole and has been identified as a pastor at Holiness Union Church in Metsimotlhabe.
On the evening of Sunday last week, he went live on Facebook and proceeded to put a rope around his neck. He was seen in the short video hanging by the neck until he took his last breath. TO READ THE FULL STORY, BUY THIS WEEK’S (11 August 2021) PRINT EDITION OF THE MIDWEEK SUN AT A STORE NEAR YOU.
