Mochudi police are investigating the murder of a 20-year old woman who was found lying in a pool of blood at her house last week.
According to the police, the victim was stabbed multiple times with a sharp object.
Ogaufi Setswakae’s motionless body was found by her sister, One Setswakae, at Makakatela ward and was rushed to Deborah Retief Hospital where she was certified dead.
It is reported that the victim’s sister last saw her leaving the house at 1900hrs with her boyfriend and father of her child – Othusitse “Shaa” Kgosimore (24).
An hour later the sister told the police she heard someone scream the words “ijoo mma wee” but dismissed it as a trivial occurrence.
She later discovered her sister’s body sprawled on the front yard and immersed in blood.
The priority suspect was the father of Setswakae’s child, Kgosimore, who turned himself in at the police station and is currently remanded in custody.
An ominous text was discovered in the victims messages that originated from Kgosimore’s phone which read; “O bona wena ke tsile go dira sengwe jaaka o ntshokodisa jaana, o tsile go se bona,” which was sent to her a day before she was brutally stabbed to death.
Inspector Buyanga of Mochudi Police confirmed the incident and said the suspect was in detention and would appear in court on the 27th of July.
