A man who allegedly killed his ex-fiancee’s new lover has handed himself to the police.
This man is a 53-year-old man in the North West and after committing the crime, he buried the man in a shallow grave.
His name is Jonas Rabaitsile Matshane, also known as Rambo, and he reportedly handed himself to the police days after his ex-girlfriend’s new boyfriend, Dan Moleko Radebe had been reported missing and later found dead.
The North West Police spokesperson Captain Sam Tselanyane confirmed this in a recent submission saying;
“The mysterious disappearance of Radebe led his girlfriend to go and report him as a missing person at Ventersdorp SAPS.
Moreover, it is alleged that early on the morning of Sunday, March 28, Matshane was seen coming from the direction of wheat fields holding a spade.
A search for Radebe was initiated. On Tuesday, March 30, the lifeless body of Radebe was found in a shallow grave in the wheat fields not far from farm workers’ houses.
The deceased had visible facial injuries and probably head injuries. The body was not in a very bad state of decomposition but had started to swell.
The real cause of death will be determined next week by the post-mortem. He was then detained and eventually transported back to Ventersdorp. He was charged with murder and defeating the ends of justice.
He appeared briefly before the Ventersdorp Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, April 1, and will remain in custody.
The case was remanded until April 7 for a formal bail application. Investigations continue.”
