Zim man shot over pay

GABORONE - A Zimbabwean man was shot four times after asking his employer for payment.

Gift Ncube, an immigrant working in Botswana, was shot four times, resulting in the breaking of both his arms which had to be amputated.

His employer, identified as Keitumetse Khunowu, is said to have lost his temper when Ncube asked to be paid his dues after he had just finished clearing two hectares of land.

“I am finished, it would have been better if he had just killed me because now I cannot do anything for myself,” said a distraught Ncube.

According to Ncube, the agreement was that he would receive $460 upon clearing the bushy area but was paid $22.

Ncube then reported the matter to the police before going back to Khunowu’s residence to ask for his money again.

An infuriated Khunowu is alleged to have shot him four times.

Cdes and friends, this is typical of Tswana people. They hate Zimbabwean like no body's business. Shame, shame and shame on the Ncube guy. How is the police going to enforce its own laws here. I guess even when he went to the police, they even asked him about his stay and immigration conditions in Botswana.......you see how Tswanas are?

Surely this is a double tragedy.These people easily forget that days are not always the same.Some of them might derive joy from illtreating Zimbabweans today forgetting what will tomorrow bring them.This is also a wake up call for our leadership to sort out the mess in our country.
