KILLER DAD TO REAPER IN COURT AFTER PSYCHIATRIC EXAMINATION
Another full house is expected today (Friday) at the Francistown Magistrate’s Court when the man accused of killing his two young daughters again appears in court.
The case resumes after 22-year-old Thebe Ndjavera from Somerset East was scheduled to have undergone a psychiatric evaluation.
The questions on everyone’s lips will be: ‘Is he mad?’ and ‘Why did he do it?’
Two weeks ago security officers manning the court were hard pressed to control curious members of the public who jostled to obtain a place in a courtroom that can only hold around 60 people – over a 100 were forced to remain outside.
The BDF employee has been charged with the brutal murders of his daughters, Paseka Botho Ramaditse (4) and her 2-year-old sister Palesa Baby Ramaditse.
He is yet to be asked to plead to the charge as police investigations into the matter were still ongoing a month after the incident.
Ndjavera, who was denied bail, showed little emotion throughout the hearing although he frequently looked over to where the children’s mother, Sento Ramaditse tearfully sat with family members.
She did not return his look, most of the time covering her face with a white head tie.
