Notorious Ntsuape convicted of burning ex-lover’s mother alive

Convicted of murder, arson and five attempted murders, the rope could soon be tightening around notorious outlaw, Gobuamang Ntsupe’s neck.

The 35-year-old killer also faces two more murder charges and a further four attempted murders in a separate matter still before court.

Last Friday, the case which originally plunged Ntsuape into the limelight moved a step closer to its end.

Francistown High Court found him guilty of burning his ex-girlfriend’s mother, Sadi Kgosietsile to death, dousing the poor woman in petrol and setting her alight at her home in Francistown’s Block 9 location on 13 September 2016.

Sadi succumbed to her burns on a hospital bed a few days later.

Ntsuape also set fire to the house. However, his intended target, his former lover, Dorcas Kgosietsile, escaped the flames with her life, as did her father, Chief, brother, Tiro and two children, Segolame and Matla – who is also Ntsuape’s son.

He was convicted of trying to kill them all.

Court heard that on the day of the fire, Ntsuape departed Gaborone for Francistown with murder on his mind.

He bought petrol at a filling station in town, filling a 5-litre container before taking a taxi to the Kgosietsile family home where Dorcas, 41, was staying.

Upon reaching his destination, the determined killer jumped the wall, sneaking into the yard, where he dialled Dorcas’ phone to find out exactly where she was.

He heard her mobile ringing in a two-roomed lodging separate from the main house.

Seeing who was calling and suspecting something might be up, Dorcas immediately phoned her parents to warn them to be careful.

Rushing to check on their daughter, Sadi and Chief left the safety of the house, bumping into Ntsuape in the backyard.

He reacted by pouring petrol over both and setting them on fire, before also torching the house and then smashing up two cars in the drive.

In finding Ntsuape guilty, Judge Lot Moroka said there was no doubt his original plan was to kill Dorcas, and that her parents’ intervention led to the mother’s death.

“In pouring petrol and setting Sadi on fire, his intention was to kill her or cause injury. To set the house on fire while the rest of the family was asleep, the intention was to cause injuries or kill them. The accused stands guilty on all the counts,” said Judge Moroka.

Although his fate looks sealed, Ntsuape is due back in court on 2 February 2022, where he will have to convince Moroka why he does not deserve to hang.

Meanwhile, in a pending matter that could also lead to the noose, Ntsuape is accused of killing two other men on 1 December 2016.

Being transported back to prison after appearing for mention in the Sadi case, he allegedly tried to gain control of the moving van, grabbing for the steering wheel.
In the commotion, the vehicle overturned, causing the death of a remand prisoner from Zimbabwe, Emmanuel Makolo, and Special Constable, Thuso Ntosa.

Ntsuape is also charged with the attempted murder of four other men who were in the car. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
