Police were then summoned to the scene and upon arrival, they opened a case of murder and started with investigations.

Mashaba said that when an investigating officer was appointed, Sebashe was arrested in connection with the murder shortly afterwards, but the case against him was provincially withdrawn pending further police investigations.

‘The accused made several court appearances until he was ultimately convicted and sentenced to 15 years direct imprisonment on Tuesday, November 22,’ said Mashaba.

Meanwhile, Limpopo provincial commissioner of police, Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has welcomed Sebashe’s conviction and sentencing.

She emphasised that gender-based violence and femicide ‘have no place in our society.’
