On Thursday, 17 June 2021, Tebogo Molefe (26) from Pretoria, Hammaskraal in Sekampaneng was allegedly stabbed to death by his baby mama for being intimate with another woman. Tebogo’s uncle, Enock Molokomme said “the victim was no longer in a relationship with the suspect and on 17th of June around midnight, Tebogo came back from the tavern with a girl.”
“Someone saw them and tipped Tebogo’s baby mama that he is with another girl (wa jelwa), the baby mama then came knocking and pushed the door to let herself in. Tebogo was lying on bed with this other lady when the suspect came in, she then stabbed him on the heart, backside, and continued to cut his finger and left side of his arm,” Molokomme said.
He furthermore said that “when she realized that Tebogo was unconscious, she went home, but the girl saw everything and was able to explain what happened and the baby mama was arrested. The family is shattered and want justice for their son ,and the perpetrator must take full accountability for what she has done,”
Tshepiso Goodness on social media said “I hear you guys talking, but imagine the pain she has caused to the family, this is scorching sadness if the tables were turned and she was the one killed, we would be shouting &protesting. What she did was wrong, justice must be served, no matter the circumstances leading to the incident. we should not forget, she did not kill only the father of her child but someone’s son too.”
The suspect appeared in court on Monday and she requested to have a state lawyer to defend her and she will appear again on July 12th at Temba Magistrate Court. Tsa Pitori could not get a comment from the investigating officer who’s handling this case by time of publishing.
