Botswana Television (BTV) news anchor based in Kasane Onkutule Thamage is said to have attempted to commit suicide on Tuesday this week.

The Morwa born man was rescued by his girlfriend and is currently recuperating at Kasane Hospital.

According to Thamage’s friend who preferred to remain anonymous, the victim had had a row with his girlfriend.

He attempted to hang himself in a wardrobe which broke and he fell.

He said the girlfriend heard a noise in the bedroom, and when she went to investigate found that he was trying to kill himself.

“This man has a problem, he needs serious counselling. His lover wanted to break up with him but he threatened to kill himself.

It was difficult since he is new in the area on transfer and we have not known each other for very long.

I was still trying to understand his character.

I tried to talk to him and make him accept the situation, but my advice did not help.” He said.

For his official comment Kasane District CID Officer Detective Superintendent Alakanani David confirmed the incident.

He said the investigations were still in their initial stages and could not give further details.
