A 35-year old man is accused of rape and murder of a 2-year old boy. The man is expected to appear in FS court.
According to Brigadier Samuel Makhele, the suspect took the victim to the tuck shop in Petsana, but later he returned alone claiming that the boy disappeared on the way back.
The boy could not be found by the search party.
On March 11, 2019 the suspect led the police to the spot between the local Primary school and dumping site, where the officers found the body.
“Evidence gathered during the preliminary investigation suggest that the victim was raped and strangled,” Makhele said.
