The boyfriend and the female suspect, 23, were arrested on Tuesday and charged with murder.

"The provincial commissioner of police in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has strongly condemned this incident of gender-based violence and has commended the police for apprehending the suspects a day [after] the brutal killing,” said Mojapelo.

Martha Matlou, mother to deceased said, "Lebo was home the whole Saturday doing home chores. She went to bed, later she told me that her sister asked her to bring cash at a wedding just before 21h00. I slept hoping she will come back. In the morning our neighbor asked me to check if Lebo is home because he just heard that there are police vehicles at his boyfriend's home and it seems like there was a fight between them."Latest Post
