Justice served! Killer gets two life sentences for horror lesbian murder
May 27, 2015
Activists have welcomed the two life terms handed out to the man who brutally murdered Disebo Gift Makau, an openly lesbian woman, in August last year.
The Potchefstroom High Court last week sentenced Stoffel Pule Motlhokwane to life in prison for rape, life for murder, and 15 years for robbery.
Motlhokwane was found guilty of raping and strangling the 24-year-old Makau to death with a wire in Ventersdorp, in the North West province.
Her half naked body was discovered in the Tshing location with a running hose pipe shoved down her throat and into her stomach.
