“We do not know whether he was involved in a fight or he fell from a car. We are still investigating, we do not know what could have transpired,” admitted the police boss, adding the deceased’s close relatives have been notified.

Staying in the town, on Wednesday morning at around 4 o’clock, a bus carrying passengers from Gaborone to Kasane hit a donkey five kilometres out of Nata.
