Two years later, Police in Mochudi are yet to say who the human bones found by three firewood harvesting elders belong to. On the Sunday of October 6 in 2013, a trio of elders collecting firewood around the Pilane and Morwa hills in Kgatleng made a gruesome discovery of the bones which the police took for laboratory tests and confirmed them as human bones.
The then Assistant Superintendent Kabelo Bome of Mochudi Police confirmed the incident but only said they were still investigating the matter. At the time, the police were still to ascertain if any person had gone missing without being found in their area of jurisdiction. Police in Mochudi this week were non-committal on what has happened since, promising to return with information once they have established the facts around the matter.
Although the Kgatleng area has over the years been notorious for mysterious disappearing acts of people, most were eventually found dead with missing body parts, sometimes months after their disappearance. In this case,there seems to have been no link with any person who went missing but was never found.
