Alleged Insurance Fraud Killer Agnes Segomotsi Setshwantsho Denied Bail

The denial of bail means that Setshwantsho will remain behind bars as the legal proceedings continue. The court's decision reflects the seriousness of the charges against her and the potential risk she poses to society if released.

Agnes Segomotsi Setshwantsho, the alleged insurance fraud killer, has been denied bail by the Molopo Magistrate’s Court in North West.

Setshwantsho is accused of murdering her family members in order to claim insurance payouts. The suspect, who was arrested in November 2023, is facing charges of murder, defeating the ends of justice, and two counts of fraud.

It has been alleged that the accused fraudulently took out a R3 million life insurance policy on Modiseemang six months before her passing.
