An 18-year-old, Gomolemo Legae, from Ramosadi village, outside Mahikeng in the North West, was brutally murdered on Sunday.
The community of Ramosadi village outside Mahikeng is in shock after she was stabbed several times before she was doused with petrol and set alight while she was still alive. News of her brutal attack spread quickly on social media this week.
“According to information available at this stage, reports suggest that the woman was on her way home when the suspect approached her. She was heard screaming a few minutes later,” said provincial police spokesperson Brig Sabata Mokgwabone.
“Although she was subsequently found bleeding, she managed to inform the members of the community who the suspect was. The woman suffered third-degree burns.”
A 19-year-old suspect is expected to appear in the Mmabatho magistrate’s court on Wednesday on a charge of murder.
The teenage boy, who initially evaded arrest, was handed over to police on Monday afternoon by his brother
