Matlou’s body found lying in her boyfriend’s home at Mosesetjane in Mahwelereng policing area on Sunday, with multiple stab wounds.

‘The police were called to the scene and on arrival, they found the body with visible injuries and immediately commenced with investigations,’ said Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo of the South African Police Service.

The boyfriend and the female suspect, 23, were arrested on Tuesday and charged with murder.

‘The provincial commissioner of police in Limpopo, Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has strongly condemned this incident of gender-based violence and has commended the police for apprehending the suspects a day [after] the brutal killing,’ said Mojapelo.

Martha Matlou, mother of the victim said, “Lebo was home the whole Saturday doing home chores. She went to bed, later she told me that her sister asked her to bring cash at a wedding just before 9pm. I slept hoping she will come back. In the morning our neighbor asked me to check if Lebo is home because he just heard that there are police vehicles at his boyfriend’s home and it seems like there was a fight between them.’

‘On my arrival there I was then told that this sad and tragic incident might have happened around three o’clock in the morning. My child was brutally killed and chances are that the suspect will not be locked in jail. Because of that family history of killing people and always getting away with murder I advised my child to end the relationship but she ignored me. It is unfortunate she had to die like that.’
