Man (36) killed in mob justice

Mob justice in Tikwana, Hoopstad, claimed the life of a 36-year-old man who was beaten to death by an angry mob for allegedly stabbing a 29-year-old man in the face.

The deceased, Molefi Kubu, was attacked by a group of men on Wednesday, 1 May, in Tikwana after the man he had allegedly stabbed in the face reported him to a group of men in the township.

The group apparently went to his residence, forced him out of his house and beat him to death.

Police members from Hoopstad were called to the scene. Residents threatened to burn the police vehicle and the police members sought back-up from the station commander and her team.

On arrival at the scene, four suspects – aged 32 to 37 years – were identified and arrested by the station commander of Hoopstad, Capt. Lettie van Eeden.

The suspects were charged with murder and appeared in the Hoopstad Magistrate Court on Friday (03/05).

Sixty people demanded their release, but it was denied. The case has been remanded for further investigation.

The situation is under control as members of Public Order Policing were deployed to maintain law and order in Tikwana.

The cluster commander of Welkom, Maj. Gen. Lerato Molale, condemned the killing of people through mob justice. Molale encouraged residents to report crime to the local police so that perpetrators of crime can face the might of the law.

Molale also applauded the members for arresting the murder suspects at the scene.
