It can happen anywhere

With the crime rate so low in Botswana and especially here in Letlhakane we never expected it to happen to us.

It was quite a shock on Thursday morning when Sue noticed that he laptop, that had been sitting on a chair in our dining room was no longer there and then all the contents of her work bag gone. That included company petty cash a cell phone, purse, passport, work and residency permits. Then her cell phone which had been on the dinning room table was also found missing.

Last Wednesday night whilst we were sleeping, two guys, using our mop, pulled things closer to our windows and helped themselves to things.

Outside the windows we found her passport, permits, purse with just bank cards and other papers.

Not a nice thing to have happened, lessons learnt.

    Dear Pete and Sue – sorry to hear that this has happened. Not nice when our personal spaces are invaded. Yours being that life has been free up until now.

    No matter where a person is in the world, there are folk seeking to take what they have not earned. Here in the Uk we can have just as bad. Where I am ,our windows in the ground floor flat are firmly shut at night or when we go out.

    Here’s hoping things return to normal and the shock settles. Take care both of you.
