Lesotho Times - - Front Page - ’Marafaele Mohloboli

a Quthing man is in po­lice cus­tody for cas­trat­ing his neigh­bour he had al­legedly caught hav­ing sex with his wife.

Po­lice spokesper­son Clifford Molefe yes­ter­day con­firmed the ar­rest of 30-year-old Ka­belo Mathi­beli soon af­ter the in­ci­dent, which he said took place last Satur­day in Pa­bal­long in Mafeteng.

Senor in­spec­tor Molefe told the Le­sotho Times: “ac­cord­ing to the in­for­ma­tion we have so far, the sus­pect is said to have come home from work ear­lier than ex­pected at around 11 am, only to find his house locked and no sign of his wife.

“He then de­cided to knock on the neigh­bour’s door and ask if, by any chance, the man had seen his wife. there was no an­swer al­though the key was still in the key­hole and he could hear sounds com­ing from the house.”

Snr insp Molefe said the hus­band be­came sus­pi­cious and de­cided to go to the back of the house and peeped through the win­dow.

“im­me­di­ately he is said to have seen the cou­ple hav­ing sex and re­alised that it was his wife and the neigh­bour. that’s when he broke the win­dow and forced his way into the room. He over­pow­ered the neigh­bour and re­moved his whole man­hood with the knife,” Snr insp Molefe added.

the heav­ily bleed­ing man was then rushed to Queen ’Mamo­hato Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal by well-wish­ers where he is still de­tained and fight­ing for his life, Snr Insp Molefe said.

a pic­ture of the man in hos­pi­tal with­out his gen­i­tals has since gone vi­ral on the in­ter­net. the Le­sotho Times could not im­me­di­ately es­tab­lish who took the photo.

Snr insp Molefe said Mathi­beli is ex­pected to ap­pear in court on 8 de­cem­ber to face an at­tempted mur­der charge.

“the po­lice are still con­duct­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the mat­ter but the sus­pect will ap­pear in court on 8 de­cem­ber. the 28-year-old vic­tim is mar­ried and re­mains in hos­pi­tal,” Snr insp Molefe added.

Mean­while, Mathi­beli’s wife is al­leged to have since run away from home fol­low­ing the in­ci­dent.
