Murder suspects denied bail

DENIED BAIL: Kgotlaeame

Two youthful men accused of two separate gruesome murder cases in Kweneng District will remain locked behind bars till the finalisation of their cases.

Tebogo Kgotlaeame, 30, from Mokgopetsane ward in Molepolole is charged with the murder of 28-year-old Judith Kgalalelo Mosweu.

He allegedly gave the young woman a ride and later raped, killed and burnt her to ashes last year on Valentine’s Day at Ratotoboro settlement.

When appearing before Molepolole Chief Magistrate, Goabaone Rammapudi, the investigating officer in the case, Detective Assistant Superintendent Albert Mfanyana, opposed Kgotlaeame’s bail noting that he was a flight risk and pleaded with the court to consider the gravity of the offence as well as the accuseds’ safety from the already incensed public.

Kgotlaeame complained that he has been waiting for  too long while the prosecutor kept postponing the case. 

“The prosecutor once said he needed a year for investigations to be completed, he was supposed to tell the court why he needed such a lengthy period,” said Kgotlaeame who once confessed to the murder before court claiming we was driven by demons to commit the offense.

However, State Prosecutor, Assistant Superintendent Uyapo Koketso explained that the matter was forwarded to DPP and later returned for them to make amendments.

Magistrate Rammapudi ruled that committal proceedings of the case to the high court will be conducted on August 10th, 2020 and ordered for the substantive prosecutor from DPP to be available.

Kabo Motlhabane, the 33-year-old suspect in the other murder offense,  is said to have on February 22nd, 2019 stabbed 33-year-old Boipelo Mpolokang in full view of her more than 50 fellow Ipelegeng Programme workers at Borakalalo customary court.

He is also facing another charge of threat to kill which on the same day he allegedly threatened to kill one, Maemo Tiro, by uttering the words, “I will kill you in two weeks, unless you kill me.”

The notorious ex-convict who has since served 17 years in jail for other offences will appear for mention on July 16th, 2020.

The duo Kgotlaeame and Motlhabane have been locked up since last year February.
