Madiba senior school student, Kagiso Selebo,19 is battling for her life at Mahalapye hospital after she was shot six times by her jealous lover.
The boyfriend and father of her two children, Morulaganyi Sebopeng also 19 years of age shot her after she had asked for a break from him to concentrate on her studies.
Selebo’s cousin Gagobotlhale Selebo witnessed the bloody incident which happened on Sunday morning.
She said: “He knocked on Kagiso’s window and when she woke up, he started shooting at her.
I was fast asleep but woke up when I heard Kagiso screaming.
When I opened my room her blood splattered on me.
There was blood everywhere. She told me Sebopeng shot her and that’s when I started sending call back messages to her brother who came and rushed her to the hospital.
Our grandmother was at the cattle post so he knew we were alone.”
The x-ray shows that Selebo was shot with five bullets on her left arm as she tried to block them.
The shooting also shaved off three of her fingers on the right hand and she has two bullets lodged in her chest which doctors say they will not remove because they are too close to her heart, Gagobotlhale revealed.
Mahalapye Police Superintendent Amos Kekgathetse said they have arrested the suspect and taken as part of evidence the gun he is suspected to have used pending investigations.
