18-year-old Gomolemo Legae was stabbed more than 25 times, but this was not enough for her assailant, who allegedly returned to douse her with petrol and set her alight.
The incident happened in Ramosadi village, Mahikeng in the North West in the early hours of Sunday December 1.
Police said Legae was possibly raped before she was stabbed and a charge to that effect could be added to the murder charge.
Her grieving aunt, Gadifele Mashetla, told City Press on Tuesday, that her niece’s killer was “determined to take her life”.
“We’re told by pathologists that she was stabbed more than 25 times in the chest and back but Gomolemo fought on, refusing to die. He then went and bought petrol which he used to set her alight,” Mashetla said.
She said her niece “could have been saved” had the ambulance responded earlier.
Mashetla said that after the attack, her niece was found by a passerby, a man from the neighbourhood. He left her in the care of another man, in order to direct the ambulance to her location. But before the ambulance could arrive, the assailant returned and set her alight.
“She told [the passerby] who had stabbed her, and was still fighting death. The man called police and ambulance and after some time when they did not arrive, he asked another man to stand there with Gomolemo so he can go to the main road and wait to direct the ambulance from there,” Mashetla said.
“Suddenly he saw flames from the distance and came running, only to find Gomolemo in flames.”
She said that it wasn’t certain whether the other man had left Gomolemo or if he was chased away by the assailant.
“Gomolemo was a fighter … she was still alive when the police arrived but the ambulance took time to arrive and she took her last breath. My niece struggled, fought and refused to let go of her last breath and could have been saved.”
Mashetla said the alleged killer was known to the family and was from their neighbourhood.
“The boy’s family came to see us today, asked for our forgiveness and told us that they are the ones who went and searched for their son before handing him over to the police,” she said.
North West police spokesperson, Brigadier Sabata Mokgwabone, has confirmed the incident.
“The 19-year-old suspect allegedly stabbed the victim multiple times with a sharp object and doused her with petrol. The suspect was handed over to the police Monday in the afternoon and he was expected to appear in the Mmabatho Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday on a charge of murder. There is the possibility that a charge of rape may be added,” Mokgwabone said.
North West Premier, Job Mokgoro, has expressed “sadness and concern at the increasing number of the violent rape and murder being perpetrated against young women in the various parts of the North West in recent days”.
According to a statement released by Mokgoro’s office, the alleged killer was arrested after “he was positively identified through CCTV footage at a nearby petrol station in the area where he allegedly purchased petrol and went on to set the victim alight”.
The MEC for social development, Boitumelo Moiloa, has already contacted the family of the deceased to determine how the provincial government could assist with counselling and other necessary intervention during this moment of grief.
Legae’s killing comes just over a day after the burial of 21-year-old college student, Precious Ramabulana, who was reportedly stabbed 52 times and died on the eve of the launch of the 16 Days of Activism campaign at Mokomene village in Limpopo.
Legae’s aunt, Mashetla, said she will be buried on Wednesday in Mahikeng.
Meanwhile, the North West government has committed to easing the family’s pain by helping with the funeral.
“The department of social development, led by the MEC, will assist the family with all funeral arrangements to ensure a dignified funeral for the deceased in Seweding village,” Mokgoro’s spokesperson, Vuyisile Ngesi said.
Video Showing LASU Student Sucking On Little Girl’s Lips Goes Viral; He Reacts Claiming The Girl Is His Sister
A video showing a man sucking on a little girl’s lips while kissing her has gone viral. The man has now reacted in an attempt to clear his name.
In the video, the man is seen asking the girl to kiss him but there was nothing innocent about the kiss on the man’s part. He took the girl’s lower lip between his and kept sucking on it. He did this three more times.
When he was done kissing the girl, he looked at the camera, licked his lips and winked. A man’s voice is also heard hailing him with the words, “Ahhh. On top your matter.”
“Dad & Baby,” the caption on the video reads.
The video, which some have classified as child porn, will not be shared here.
After the video went viral, an Instagram user disclosed the identity of the man in the video and called him a pedophile. She added that the man is not the child’s father as suggested in the video’s caption.
“His name is Adeyeye Babatunde. He is a final year Botany student at LASU,” the post revealing the man’s identity reads.
Babatunde has now responded. He said the woman who posted the video did it out of spite because they had a misunderstanding.
He wrote: “Ain’t a rapist…”
He added that the girl whose lips he was sucking on is his younger sister.
“Just because we had an (sic) misunderstanding she decided to post my junior sister n I video.
“She did this out of annoyance, God is watching if truly I have bad intentions but if not your generation will suffer for it.”

‘Are You Sleeping With My Wife’ : Mike Tyson’s Confrontation With Donald Trump Revealed
Per account by O’Brien, there was a confrontation between President Donald Trump and heavyweight boxing legend, Mike Tyson in Trump’s office.
Mike Tyson was reported to have barged into the office of Trump to question him about his affair with his wife.
In Tim O’Brien’s book, TrumpNation, Tim revealed that Mike Tyson whilst married to Robin Given charged at Trump and asked him;
“Are you f***ing my wife?”.
Times reported that Trump at the time was in his New York officer when the heated confrontation took place.
The book indicated that Mike Tyson’s friendship with Trump, who was his advisor and his financier for his 1988 fight against Spinks, became tensed after the boxing legend accused him of sleeping with his wife.
O’Brien quoted Trump as saying: “He said, ‘could I ask you, are you fucking my wife?’
“Now, if I froze, I’m dead… You would have zero chance.
“Here’s the heavyweight champion of the world, and he’s a solid piece of f***ing armour.”
Odion Ighalo Vows To Take Man Utd ‘Higher’ After Signing ‘Dream’ Contract Extension
Nigerian striker, Odion Ighalo has revealed he is determined to push Manchester United up the Premier League table after signing a contract extension that will keep him at the English club till January 2021.
Shanghai Shenhua, Ighalo’s parent club in China initially wanted to only let go of Ighalo if Manchester United buys him for £20m, but new border rules brought about by Covid-19 meant even if Ighalo had left Manchester United at the end of May it would have taken him over a month before he could enter China, a reality that spurred contract negotiations between both clubs.
On Monday United finally confirmed they had agreed with a loan extension for the Nigerian. The deal, which does not include an option or obligation to buy, will keep him at the club until January 31, 2021
Ighalo, 30, says he’s overjoyed to have extended his stay at ManU as it has been his dream to represent the club he supported as a child.
“I’m really happy. It’s a dream for me to be here. I’m buzzing and ready to go,” Ighalo told MUTV on Tuesday.
“The last few days have been difficult as there have been different talks about it but now I’m really happy so I need to concentrate fully. I’m here until the end of January, so it’s good for me.
“I decided I want to stay and I’m happy. Since the first day I arrived, I made it clear that I wanted whatever it takes to continue that work. It was very difficult, there were some talks, but I’m happy they finally agreed and got everything done. Everything is official now.
“I’m sending thanks to the Shanghai president and director for the support because they know this is what I want. So I’m thanking them and I’m happy that this has happened. They wish me all the best too.
“Like I’ve said, since I was young, I’ve been supporting this club and playing for it is a dream. Now I’ve extended my loan, it makes it even more clear and I’m committed as I know, in my head, I’m here until January ending. I just want to work hard and enjoy it, support the team and do whatever I can to make us go higher and higher.”
“It’s different from where I’m coming from and different to where I was before,” he said. “It’s something I’ve never seen before and it makes me wonder if I’m dreaming or it’s reality.”
“I’m getting better and better every day,” he told the club’s website. “We have been training together the past two weeks now, so it’s getting close to the game. The sharpness is coming, the fitness is coming and everything is going well.
Speaking about how Covid-19 has affected his training at Manchester United, Ighalo said;
“It’s been strange, you know, because you have to stay two metres apart to talk to your team-mates. Sometimes, you need to get close to give them some signs but now it’s two metres and it’s kind of strange.
“But this is what we have to do for us to be safe and for the game to go on. We are ready to do it and we’re happy to do it. Everybody is looking good. Running, working hard and playing football. Little two-a-sides and doing some ball work.
“Everyone is getting better and better. Everyone is back, even Paul is back training normally and Rashy is back training as normal. Everyone is training normally and training full and all that, so the squad is full and everyone is ready, I think.
“I can’t wait for the league to start again. I’m really looking forward to it. We’re working hard and I believe we’re going to do great.”
Ighalo initially joined United in a Deadline Day move in January and scored four times in eight appearances in all competitions prior to the suspension of the Premier League.
