The 26-year-old has been charged with a single count of murder and will appear for next mention on the 27th of this month.
He is accused of killing his then girlfriend, Thabang Marope, 39, who at the time was working a night shift at Boseja clinic.
That fateful night, February, 27th, 2018, Marope was on duty alongside a male colleague, a 70 year old who is a witness in the matter.
Allegedly, the old man had taken a walk around the buildings when the assailant launched the attack, slashing the victims head and thighs with the axe.
