Maun police have detained two men in connection with a murder case that took place at Qorokwe Camp in the Okavango Delta.
The two, Mothoka Mudau, 59 an employee at the camp and Head of arbitration at Ditshiping settlement near the camp, Galebose Tshekonyana, 68 will be brought before court to confess who actually killed Lister Kehemetswe 51 who was shot under mysterious circumstances two weeks back.
Kehemetswe was employed as guide at the camp.
The duo is also facing another charge of illegal hunting because they failed to produce a valid hunting licence for buffalos.
Information from the police is that the trio (including the deceased person) went hunting in the morning where they shot and wounded a buffalo which they failed to track.
Maun Station Commander Superintendent Kenny Badumetse told The Voice that, however, the three made a follow up in the afternoon where they met the wounded buffalo. He said that it was at this juncture that the buffalo attacked the deceased and during the scuffle he dropped his gun before falling from the beast horns as it had taken him up.
“One of the men who were with him managed to get the gun and tried to shoot the buffalo but somehow mistakenly shot the deceased who died on the spot.” Badumetse said that the revelations came after a dead buffalo was found three days after the accident and the two were taken into custody.
He mentioned that the two will appear before magistrate court where they will make a confession on who really fired the shot.
