Ficksburg - A 33-year-old man was jailed for life by the Free State High Court sitting in Ficksburg on Friday, the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) said.

Tebogo David Ramakatsa was found guilty of two counts of murder, two of robbery and one of sexual assault, said Free State NPA spokesman Phaladi Shuping.

“He was sentenced to life imprisonment for each count of murder, seven years for each count of robbery and four years for sexual assault.”

The sentences would run concurrently.

Ramakatsa killed Nthati Alice Mothokho and Malintle Qothelo, who was pregnant at the time.

“Qothelo had her belly ripped open while she was still alive because the killer wanted to take her foetus for muti purposes,” said Shuping.
