Police in Botlokwa, Limpopo, say investigations are under way into the rape and murder of a 21-year-old Capricorn TVET College student.

The Public Management student, Precious Ramabulana, was found dead on Saturday. She was stabbed 52 times.

The attack on her comes as the country observes “16 Day of Activism against gender based violence” which President Cyril Ramaphosa launched outside Lephalale on Monday.

Police spokesperson Motlafela Mojapelo explains:

The motive for this attack is not known at this stage but police investigations are continuing. We are making a call for any person with information to contact the nearest police station.”
