Mwakusha you cansay that again. Botswana is doing serious ppolicing unlike here in Zim, vana vanourayana and police does nothing until the one who killed the other even kills himself without the police apprehending him. Dai mapurisa akasunga mkomana wekusouthleypark or Stoneridge whichever location, Dai asina kufa.kkusunga munhu apara mhosva brings justices to the offended, protects the community from undesirable elements, it also protect the offender. I feel they is more to nyaya yemwana akauraiwa akaiswa mucooler box than meet the eye. To me, Mwana akauraya umwe anga akatumwa, maybe akapromiswa mari but then munhu akamutuma upon realising kuti nyaya yaipa killed the boy after using him to kill the 16 year.old.m.nyaya iyi ngaihongorirwe mushe Ine vanhu vakuru mukati, worse still the boy was living with a step mom, I smell a rat. People might think it's drugs but I doubt that very much because mKomana wokuuraya mumwe seemed to know where he was taking the body ndosaka akatora bhara. Somehow maybe munhu akamutuma made a u turn or did not fullfil his side of the bargain hence he dumped the body. It's very possible kuti the same culprit akatumwa uyu mwana is the one who followed the offender akamuuraya to cover up so that they are not exposed and appear like suicide... The real offender might be out there.
