Reading Time: < 1 minute

State witness Bontle Mokoena says she was told by police that her sister Karabo was killed as a sacrifice. Mokoena was testifying at the High Court in Johannesburg a short while ago, where murder accused Sandile Mantsoe is on trial.

Bontle Mokoena says they were told by the police that Karabo was killed and her body burnt as a sacrifice. She says this was apparently done so that her boyfriend, Sandile Mantsoe, could succeed in business.

An emotional Bontle told the court that prior to her sister’s death, Karabo told Bontle and her mum that Mantsoe had assaulted her and her mother begged her to get out of the relationship.

Another friend, Puleng Mthethwa has also been called to the stand to testify. She has told the court of several incidents where she witnessed Mantsoe assaulting Karabo.
