Two men on Monday appeared before the Mohale Magistrate’s Court accused of killing a 43-year-old woman.
According to police spokesperson Senior Inspector Clifford Molefe, the now-deceased disappeared from her home on 11 April.
“The 43-year-old woman from Marakabei in Ha Tlali village was reported missing from her home on 11 April and some parts of her body were found on 14 April in a field,” Senior Inspector Molefe said.
“The suspects, aged 41 and 34, appeared before the Mohale Magistrate’s Court on 27 April and were released on bail. The body parts that were found in the countryside were her ribs and skull; they were found by her fellow villagers who reported the gruesome find to the police, leading the suspects’ arrest.”
According to Senior Inspector Molefe, the other parts were still missing.
“The deceased and suspects came from the same village. It was alleged that the suspects followed the victim from the bar as she went home,” said Senior Inspector Molefe.
However, the police spokesperson would not give further details as he said this might jeopardise investigations. He would also not comment if this could be a ritual murder.
“We cannot release further information as doing so might jeopardise investigations that are in progress.”
