Mzwandile Majosi (28) was remanded in custody when he appeared before the Kimberley Magistrate's Court on Thursday in connection with the alleged murder of an off-duty police officer.

According to police spokesperson, Captain Philani  Nkwalas, the body of Constable Lentswe Edward Mogorosi was discovered in the veld near Lerato Park on the 8th of January this year, at around 05:45.

"He had sustained multiple stab wounds on his face and body.

"The Hawks’ swift response and preliminary investigation led to the arrest of Majosi and the recovery of personal items which belonged to the slain cop," described Captain Nkwalas.

"The motive of the killing is at the subject of the Hawks’ investigation."

Majosi’s case was postponed to 26 January 2017 for bail application and the investigation into the murder continues.
