Police question students over Nata Snr School inferno

Published

Nata Police are in the process of questioning 67 boys who were accommodated in the second floor of Nata Senior School dormitory which partially burnt down on Sunday afternoon.

The hostel which housed 286 boys burnt down during lunch hour when most of the learners were away.

In an interview with The Voice, Nata Police Station Commander Superintendent Vincent Pitseetsile said it is still too early to know what could have started the fire.

“We have to interview all the 67 boys to find out who remained behind during the day, if indeed anybody remained behind. We have to know exactly what those who remained behind were doing, and then we’ll take it from there,” he said and added: “It’s a long process and will take time,” Pitseetsile said.

Meanwhile, Ministry of Basic Education (MOBE) has stated that all the 286 boys from the school are safe and have found alternative accommodation within the school premises.

In a statement released yesterday (Monday) MOBE revealed that 67 boys who were accommodated in the second floor where the fire started lost most of their belongings.

“We are working with Social and Community Development Office to provide clothing and other basic amenities to the boys so that teaching and learning is less affected,” reads part of the statement from MOBE.

Franco to perform three sets at his ‘Fill up show’

Celebrated rhumba artist, Franco, says he will perform at least three sets at his much anticipated fill up show slated for April 4 at the National stadium.

Franco-born Frank Lesokwane- held a press briefing this morning to confirm the show dubbed ‘Soul fill up’.

His first appearance on stage has been scheduled for 8 PM, followed by another midnight stunner and last performance at 4 am.

It has also been said that on the day it will be an all-local line up, though the line up is yet to be finalised.

Speaking at the event, one of the show organisers, Kabelo Oanthata, emphasized that the event is a one man show. “Essentially the event is about the man himself Franco. His performance will take attendants down memory lane through his 17 albums. Of course he cannot be on stage all night long so he will have supporting local acts,” Oanthata explained.

For his part, Franco said he had always had a vision of one day hosting an event of this magnitude and that it is long overdue. “The day has finally come for me to call upon all Batswana to witness for the first time on stage, music that I have been releasing since day one. I am not much of a speaker so I will let my performance do it for me on stage.”

The man who has been trending for the past two weeks ever since the announcement of the event further stressed: “I will fill up that stadium. It will happen, I have survived so much in my life including food poisoning, so I will get through this too and it will happen.”

Tickets for the event start going on sale from Monday with early bird tickets going for P 100, general tickets 150, double P 270 and VIP P 800.

Dj Trapp set to make her mark

Local female DJ, Laone Moemisi Ledimo – known in the music industry as DJ Trapp – plans to give back to the community.

The Maun-born DJ, who turns 29 today (Friday), recently took to her social media page to announce her charitable intentions.

“This year I’m not really doing anything big but rather wanna give back as my way of saying thank you for the support. So I might need your help in identifying the rightful family or a charity home I can donate a few hundred Pulas to,” she posted.

DJ Trapp broke into the music industry last year, featuring at her home village during the Maun Easter Bash.

She has not looked back since, going on to play at Bahama Lounge, Chez Nicolas and Leisure Gardens.

She also starred at the Phikwe Female Invasion Session with DJ Missy.

Despite maintaining that she doesn’t have anything ‘big’ planned for 2020, the hard-working DJ is one of the few already getting gigs in the new year.

“My aim is to grow my brand, not only locally but internationally. I have started getting bookings for this year and will soon share my diary with the public so that they know which dates I am free. I promise not to disappoint,” she told Big Weekend, adding she is available for any booking regardless of Maun’s remoteness to the rest of the country.

To illustrate that point, she revealed some of her bookings are in Tutume.
