B. Knight started this petition to The Botswana Gorvenment (The Botswana Gorvenment) and

My name is Tlhabane Mogomotsi (known to friends and family as Shakes) and Betty Knight (Thamagana) is helping me use this petition to seek justice for my deceased younger sister, Segametsi.

She was only 14 years of age when she passed away in November 1994, in Mochudi Village, Botswana. (She would have been 39 years old this year!) Segametsi didn’t have a terminal illness, and she didn’t meet with a tragic accident, she was deliberately targeted and brutally murdered in the most incomprehensibly barbaric manner and her body seemingly harvested for black magic potions (commonly known as dipheko in Botswana or muti in South Africa).

My family has been grieving for the past 24 years – this is a long time to wait for answers and justice to be done! 

In Botswana, my sister’s name has become synonymous with ritual murder – to most people she’s only a victim of the most infamous ritual murder! But Segametsi was only a child when her life was brutally and abruptly ended. She was loved by all who knew her. She was independent, studious and a devoted Christian. Her dream was to one day become a teacher or a nurse. 

To this day, no one has been prosecuted for this brutal murder; yet the last time my family had any contact with the police, regarding the progress of their investigations, was in 1995. Scotland Yard was also brought into the country to help with the investigations, but we are still waiting to be briefed on their findings.


Sign and share this petition to force the Botswana government to do the following:

1.      Get together a new team of investigators to re-open the case

2.      Contact my family to brief us on Scotland Yard’s findings

3.      Make sure the police/investigators maintain regular communication with my family regarding the progress of their investigations

4.      Offer an apology for the way my family has been treated since the day my sister’s mutilated body was found in November 1994; we were never provided with any form of bereavement counselling/support by the government or the police.

Segametsi deserves justice and those responsible for her brutal and barbarous murder, need to be brought to justice!


Wherever you are in the world, sign and share this petition…and keep sharing it, until the Botswana government resumes the investigations.

TO ALL BATSWANA, we’ve fought for justice for Segametsi once, let’s resume that fight…We desperately need closure so we can finally and properly mourn her loss.

I would also encourage those of you who know what happened to my sister or have any kind of information (no matter how insignificant), PLEASE DON’T POST IT ON FACEBOOK, INSTEAD, CONTACT THE POLICE AND TELL THEM WHAT YOU KNOW!

It is important to remember that Police officers are not mediums or psychics, they cannot solve a crime without witnesses willingly coming forward…or without evidence!

If anyone out there, knows what happened around the time of my sister’s disappearance and subsequent murder, this is the time to come forward; 24 YEARS is a long time to hold on to a SECRET SO DARK AND SO HAUNTING!

YOU…have the power to end my family’s pain – you have the power to give Segametsi’s spirit the rest it has been seeking for the past 24 years.
