Vigilante accused case dropped

Comment on this story

Charges have been dropped against nine people accused of killing a Moletji man who stabbed his girlfriend to death, Limpopo police said on Wednesday.

The Mankweng Magistrate's Court heard on Tuesday that there was insufficient evidence linking the group to the killing of Johannes Mafikeng, said Constable Moses Malepo.

Residents of Makotopong apparently stoned Mafikeng, 30, to death on Monday morning after he stabbed Maria Mahlodi Lethole, 30, to death on Saturday. He had accused her of cheating on him.

Molepo urged members of the community to help the police with information about Mafikeng's murder.

“We are pleading with residents who have information to come forth,” he said. – Sapa
