Cop dies in car crash

A man has been charged after his car allegedly collided with another at Tsholofelo Park traffic lights and claimed the life of a police officer.

The deceased, Assistant Superintendent Irene Lepodise, 43, of Gaborone West Police Station, met her fate Friday night at 23:18hrs.

The suspect, 34-year-old Kago Heniye, was detained and arraigned before court last week Tuesday facing one count of causing death by reckless driving.

Speaking to The Voice, Broadhurst Police Station Traffic Officer- Norman Ntope, said the suspect is out on bail and that investigations are ongoing to establish the cause of the accident.

He said the suspect was breathalysed and results indicate that he was not under the influence of alcohol.

“This is a serious matter where one lost her life and we are relying on the survivor to help with the investigations. One car was coming from the western direction and the other from the east and they collided. Preliminary findings show that one of the motorists did not obey traffic lights. We advise motorist that they should be more cautious when approaching junctions or traffic lights. We lose a lot of lives and some people sustain injuries due to reckless driving,” said Ntope.

Lepodisi was laid to rest over the weekend.
