A 22 year old Donald Dlamini appeared before the Boschfontein Periodical Court on 14 November 2019, for the alleged murder of his girlfriend.
It is alleged that on Tuesday, 12 November 2019, at Schoemansdal, Driekoppies Dam, police received a complaint that Community Policing Forum members have apprehended a man suspected of having information of the whereabouts of a girl (believed to be his girlfriend), who was reported missing on 8 November 2019.
Police immediately rushed to the scene and upon arrival, the suspect confessed to have stabbed the 17 year old victim to death and then burnt her body with tyres for two consecutive days.
He further pointed out a place where he committed the evil deeds and her remains were indeed found in the bush. He was then arrested hence his appearance.
Dlamini was remanded in custody and the matter was postponed to 21 November 2019, for a formal bail application.
The Provincial Commissioner of SAPS in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma, praised the CPF members who worked with the police in making sure that the perpetrator is arrested.
