DEAD Man Keeps Disappearing; Burial Can’t Go On – GONTSE RASEALE had been missing for a long time, and when his body was found, it was already badly decomposed. The burial cannot continue.

The family is still thankful that they were able to bury him and put the chapter of their lives to rest, but this won’t happen anytime soon.


In Mogwase, North West, the body of 36-year-old Gontse Raseale was discovered in some bushes.


His body was discovered in September of last year, according to his brother, Thabo Raseale, who is 34 years old and lives in Mathibestad.

It appears that Gontse took his own life before passing away.

In November of the previous year, the family made their way to the Mogwase mortuary so that the body could be identified. After that, they moved on to making arrangements for the funeral. The grave number has been reserved, notification has been given to the funeral insurance company, and preparations have been made.

However, members of the family are understandably upset because the body was taken from the morgue.

According to Thabo, the police visited their house once more in the month of May. It would appear that the mortuary in Rustenburg was not functioning properly, which is why the body was transported to Brits.

“They told us to prepare for the funeral and come to Brits to once again identify the body,” said Thabo, adding that they took two DNA tests from members of the family. “They told us to come to Brits to once again identify the body,” said Thabo.

“In the month of May, I came across the body of my brother in Brits. I was able to recognize him by his dreadlocks, the scratch on his nose, the gap in his lower teeth, and the silver ring that he wore on his left hand. “Despite the fact that the body was in a terrible state, I was still able to recognize him,” he said.

Because the body was once again unable to be located, the family has not been able to receive it.

According to Sister Patricia Rakgekola (50), they had been preparing for the funeral for the past two weeks.

She stated that she and her mother had participated in the DNA testing, but that the body had not yet been returned.

Patricia reported that the family had spent nearly R20,000 on preparations for the funeral that was never held.

Mom Marry, who is 67 years old, was quoted as saying, “I want my son’s body so that I can bury him.”

She shared that she had tried going to pastors and traditional healers in the hopes of receiving assistance, but that she had been unsuccessful.

Mokgadi Moetji, a councillor for Forum 4 Service Delivery PR, stated that the inept government of the North West had prevented the family from getting closure on the matter. The fact that no one is willing to investigate the circumstances that may have led to the body’s disappearance is the thing that hurts the most. As part of our efforts to support the Raseale family, we intend to pursue legal action against the appropriate authorities.

According to Thabo, the family was working hard to put the painful memories of Gontse behind them; however, every time they did so, the pain of their loss would resurface.

“My brother was an upstanding citizen. I will always remember him for the love that he gave without conditions.

Tebogo Lekgethwane, a spokesman for the health department in the North West, stated that “the department is aware of this case, and the district management is handling it.” The province is going to conduct a follow-up in order to monitor progress.

After a body was discovered in the bushes, Lieutenant-Colonel Amanda Funani reported that an inquest docket had been opened at the Mogwase Police Station.

Unusual facts about the monarchy include swans, warrants, and two birthdays.

The new King of the United Kingdom will not need a passport to travel and will not need a driver’s license to drive. In addition, he will own all of the mute swans in England, and he may continue a tradition that involves celebrating his birthday twice a year.

Unusual facts about the monarchy include swans, warrants, and two birthdays.

Here is a rundown of some of the more peculiar aspects of the new monarch of Britain:

No licence or passport

King Charles III is planning to travel outside of the country without bringing a passport with him because, in contrast to the other members of the royal family, he will not require a passport because the official document will be issued in his name.

For the same reason, the King of Great Britain will be the only person in the country who does not need a driver’s license to operate a vehicle.

Her actual birthday was on April 21, and it was a private celebration. Her official public celebration was on the second Tuesday in June, which is when the summer weather tends to be better for outdoor parades. Charles’ mother, Queen Elizabeth II, had two birthdays: her actual birthday was on April 21, and it was a public celebration.

The fact that Charles’ birthday falls at the beginning of winter on November 14 makes it highly likely that he will also celebrate a “official birthday” in a month that is significantly warmer.

More than 1,400 soldiers, 200 horses, and 400 musicians take part in the public celebration known as the Trooping the Colour, which dates back more than 250 years. It is a display of military precision and involves a public celebration.

The proceedings are brought to a close by a fly-past performed by the Royal Air Force, which is watched by members of the royal family as they watch from the balcony of Buckingham Palace in central London.

No voting

The Queen of Great Britain does not have voting rights and cannot run for office. As the head of state, he or she is required to maintain complete political neutrality at all times.

They take part in the ceremonies that mark the beginning of each session of parliament, they vote on the legislation that is passed by parliament, and they meet weekly with the prime minister.

Sturgeons, dolphins, and cygnets all come to mind.

The Queen of Great Britain does more than just rule over her subjects.

Since the 12th century, unmarked mute swans that are found in open waters anywhere in England or Wales are regarded as belonging to the monarch.

Every year, royal rights are exercised on stretches of the River Thames, and as part of this tradition—which has evolved into an important conservation tool—the number of swans in those areas is tallied.

Additionally, the royal prerogative extends to whales, dolphins, and sturgeon that are found in British waters.

Official poet

Poet laureates are appointed in Britain on a ten-year cycle, and their duties include writing verses for the Queen.

The honorary post comes with a butt of sherry, which is the same as 720 individual bottles.

The custom can be traced all the way back to the 17th century.

When Carol Ann Duffy was appointed as poet laureate in 2009, she made history by becoming the first woman to hold that position.

She penned poems for the wedding of Prince William in 2011, the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth II’s coronation in 2013, and the wedding of Prince Harry in 2018. All of these events took place between 2011 and 2018.

Writ of royal warrant

Warrants are prestigious honors that are given to businesspeople in exchange for consistently providing the monarch with goods and services; these warrants tend to boost sales.

The use of the royal arms on the products manufactured by the companies that were granted the warrant is permitted.

There are a number of companies that have been awarded a royal warrant, including Burberry, Cadbury, Jaguar Cars, Land Rover, Samsung, and Waitrose supermarkets.
