Murder suspect ‘talking to cops’
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
