MOKOPANE: The family of a man that was strangled to death by another mental health patient has reached to Polokwane Weekly in order to pursue justice.

The Sekgobela family from Khala in the Waterberg say that they want to know what really happened to their loved one, who was admitted at the George Masebe Hospital in Mokopane.

The deceased, identified as Chabaku Alfios Sekgobela, who is a teacher at Olifantsdrift School in Ga – Seleka was strangled to death at the George Masebe Hospital, allegedly by another mental health patient at around 3am on Sunday morning.

The 37-year-old was admitted to the hospital on the 10th of May, after his brother Ngwako realised that although he was taking his medication regularly, he was still acting out of character.

The family says they were shocked on Sunday after the hospital contacted them about the “mysterious death” of Chabaku.

The mother of the deceased, Teresa Sekgobela has called for justice to prevail.

The family says they want the full details of what transpired on the fateful day and also the whereabouts of the nurses and the security guards during the alleged murder.

Limpopo Provincial health spokesperson Neil Shikwambana says a report that will determine what really happened over the weekend will be handed by a team of investigators in two weeks’ time.
