IN CHAINS: Efedile appeared in court on Tuesday

Police have arrested three of the four men suspected to have been terrorising Gaborone, following a spate of armed robberies on Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday consecutively.

Descriptions of a balaclava clad and gun-totting gang driving a beige Toyota Corolla get-away car became the talk of the town in Gaborone this week following the violent armed robberies at Debonairs BBS mall, Nandos main mall and Supa Save in Broadhurst Industrial.

The suspects evaded the police in the first two incidents but on Saturday when the robbers left the shop at around 7pm they were confronted by a team of police officers who were on patrol and an exchange of fire ensued.

The robbers managed to escape in a beige corolla but later at around 10.45pm a resident of Tawana location reported that there was a beige Corolla in his yard with an injured man inside.

The police responded to the report and found one of the suspects with gun-shot wounds.

He was admitted at Princess Marina hospital but managed to provide leads that led to the arrest of another suspect Bernard Efedile, 22, who has since been detained.

On Monday Efedile appeared before a Broadhurst Magistrate court, but was not asked to enter any plea as police were still on the hunt for his accomplices.

An eye witness told The Voice that on the day of the incident the men swiftly entered Supa Save Supermarket putting on balaclavas and armed with hand guns.

“They then ordered everyone to lie down and when the security guard tried to escape they hit him and he fell down and the robbers took three cash tills and airtime vouchers.

After they made their way out of the shop I heard gunshots outside and within minutes they had made off leaving the police at the scene,” she said.

The robbers are said to have made away with over P15 000 and airtime vouchers worth over P6 000.

On Tuesday morning another suspect, Oteng Tebatso Phuluweni was arrested in Francistown’s Monarch location with serious bullet injuries he sustained from the Saturday shooting.

He was found with over P1000 in his pockets. The police are still on the hunt for the fourth suspect Joseph Gaeye who is still on the run.

    If we dont kill these people they are going to kill us, our children, neighbours and even our loved ones.They deserve to be killed before they do more harm to innnocent people. Every man must reap what he sow.
