A 30-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the death of his girlfriend Kgothatso Pula who went missing on January 2nd.
She was found yesterday buried in swallow grave at her boyfriend home at Ga-Setati outside Polokwane in Limpopo.
According to Police Spokesperson Motlalefa Mojapelo,the discovery of the body was the result of an intelligence driven operation in Seshego yesterday by members of the police Crime Intelligence Unit,the Provincial Tracking Team and Polokwane Local Criminal Centre.
“What was initially sought to be a case of a missing person, turned out to be gruesome murder that was concealed for almost five months” according to Mojapelo.
The missing person enquiry was transferred to the Provincial Investigations Unit when she could not be found after a search operation.
The suspect will appear before the Seshego Magistrate Court today facing a charge of kidnapping and murder.
