Lipolelo murder case rears its head




MASERU – The Director of Public Prosecutions, Advocate Hlalefang Motinyane has written to Police Commissioner Holomo Molibeli complaining over the delays in completing the case of Lipolelo Thabane’s murder.

In a memo dated 18 January which Public Eye has seen, Motinyane disclosed that he had given a directive on August 5, 2020, “and on more than three occasions requested Molibeli to hand over the docket to the investigator, ACP Mapola but to date you have failed to do so.”

The memo ends with Motinyane appealing to Molibeli to advise the DPP’s office on the status of the docket because he does not want to be blamed over this stalled case in future.

“The above captioned matter is also one of the outstanding matters that I am avoiding to be blamed by yourself in the near future,” Motinyane’s memo states.
