Two suspects, aged 19 and 21 years, will appear in Botshabelo Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday on charges of murder and robbery.

According to Free State police, on Sunday, at about 03:00, the victim, Mohau Moko (26), came running to his aunt’s house in Botshabelo section N from the nearby tavern.

He was followed by two men who, on arrival, fatally stabbed the victim with a knife. The victim sustained three stab wounds; one to the back, one on the right side of the chest and the other one at the back of the head. He died on the scene.

An intelligence-driven investigation led to the arrest of the two suspects. One of them was found with the sports shoes belonging to the deceased.
