Two men receive life sentences for the beheading of a pregnant girl

MOKOPANE – The National Prosecution Authority (NPA) provincial spokesperson, Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi said: “The police followed a tip-off in July 2016 that Mohlake and Raatji, a former teacher, advertised to traditional leaders that they had a human head for sale.

The police set a trap for the two suspects to meet two sangomas at the Polokwane taxi rank where they were meant to hand over the head for an undisclosed amount. The police then arrested them.

Malabi-Dzhangi said the NPA welcomed the sentences and hoped it would deter others from committing similar crimes.

Judge Matsaro Semenya said it is disheartening that Raatji travelled for more than 60 km with his child while he had the head of Mojela in his vehicle.

“One can only imagine the trauma the child went through when the father was arrested.”

Raatji and Mohlake sat in silence in a packed Limpopo High Court, as Semenya convicted them to a livelong sentence for the murder of Mojela.
