Jealous woman jailed for threat to kill

A Molepolole woman has landed in prison for threatening to kill her boyfriend’s lover after she caught the cheating couple in bed.

The accused woman, Annah Sadi Phuthe on January 21st, 2022 at Ramotiketsane ward, Molepolole directly caused Dintle Tlalanyane to receive a threat by uttering the words, “ke tsile go go bolaya ngwanyana ke wena ka gore o ntseela monna ebile ke ya go go hirela Mazimbabwe ka P1000 gore ba go bolaye, loosely translated, “ I am going to kill you because you are taking my man, I will hire Zimbabweans and pay them P1000 to kill you.”

Phuthe is said to have arrived at her boyfriend, Atamelang Setlhaku’s house around 2330 hrs and knocked and threatened to burn down the house if he did not open for her.

As soon as the door was opened, she allegedly forced her way inside and started assaulting Tlalanyane with fists and slaps all over the body until she pulled her by the dress before taking an electric iron to hit her.

Eventually Tlalanyane managed to escape to Setlhaku’s car where she spent the rest of the night leaving the shared boyfriend with Phuthe inside the house.

When questioned by the police about the incident, Setlhaku admitted that indeed he was in a love triangle with the two women and they had visited him at his place at the same time.

Meanwhile tears dropped out of Phuthe’s eyes as she narrated her painful experience of sleeping in stinking police cells and later being transferred to prison to wait for her mention scheduled for February 17th, 2022.

    Indeed ” Words with actions amount to an assault”. She performed ; ” A threat to kill and assault at the same time “.So because of Jeopardy she is charged with the threat to kill only ?

    Will we be referencing this case as Phuthe versus Tlalanyane OR Phuthe versus the state (2022)
