Horrific cases of Gender based violence and crime

In a week categorized by horrific cases of gender-based violence nationally, two extreme cases tore through the moral fabric of Welkom and Thabong.

In Welkom a couple was brutally murdered, shot in the head, and a young woman was gang raped on 16 June, while in another incident in Thabong on the same day a 20-year-old Thabong man set his girlfriend alight with paraffin.

He allegedly first threw the girl on a bed and then he threw a lit paraffin heater on her, after which he doused her in more paraffin.

“It is alleged that the victim was having drinks with her friends at a neighbouring house when the boyfriend arrived. He started hurling insults at the group, and when one of the friends objected, the suspect started assaulting the victim. He kicked her and threw objects at her, then he threw her on the bed,” says Brig. Sam Makhele, spokesperson for the SAPS in the Free State.

The victim was admitted to hospital with severe burn wounds

The suspect made his first appearance in court on Monday, 15 June. Mpho Marumo (20) has been charged with attempted murder
