The Rustenburg Magistrates’ Court sentenced Mafisa Kgantso (35) for killing his girlfriend, Setseake Ntswaki Matsobe (30) and assaulting Bochire Ramoadha (35). Kgantso was also declared unfit to possess a firearm.
The court heard evidence that Kgantso and his girlfriend had an argument in the early hours of Saturday morning, 21 September 2019, at a tavern in Boitekong, close to Rustenburg.
Colonel Adéle Myburgh of North West Police said the convict, who accused his girlfriend of having an affair, attacked and stabbed her several times. Thereafter, he proceeded to stab Ramoadha.
Myburg said an excellent Investigation work by Sergeant Karabo Monyatsi of the Boitekong Detectives, led to the arrest of Kgantso after the incident was reported. “Kgantso was found guilty of murder and assault with the intent to do grievous bodily harm (GBH) and ultimately sentenced to 15 years imprisonment for murder and 12 months for assault”.
North West Police Commissioner welcomed this sentence.
