Mur­der sus­pect ‘talk­ing to cops’

Pretoria News - - METRO -

LIM­POPO po­lice say the boyfriend of the mur­dered Mankweng Hos­pi­tal in­tern doc­tor is co-op­er­at­ing with in­ves­ti­ga­tions.

The 25-year-old man is the sus­pect in the mur­der of Shongile Pretty Nk­washu, whose de­com­pos­ing body was dis­cov­ered on Sun­day evening fol­low­ing an un­pleas­ant smell that had been em­a­nat­ing from her room.

Lim­popo po­lice spokesper­son Bri­gadier Mot­lafela Mo­japelo said the sus­pect was ar­rested at his par­ents’ home and did not at­tempt to evade ar­rest.

He said the foul smell com­ing from her room drew the at­ten­tion of peo­ple who live in the same doc­tors’ quarters.

Mo­japelo said po­lice broke down the door and made the grisly dis­cov­ery. Nk­washu was found ly­ing in her bed.

“In­ves­ti­ga­tions led po­lice to the boyfriend who was ar­rested on Mon­day at his par­ents’ house in Giyani,” Mo­japelo said. | Botho Molosankwe
