10 years’ for girlfriend’s murder
Rustenburg/ Koster – “We congratulate detective constable Marlon Hebron Mawila for his excellent investigative work, which resulted in the conviction of Mojalefa Mavungu (24) for the murder of his girlfriend Margret Semakaleng Jobontho (42),” Sgt Ofentse Mokgadi, police spokesperson, said.
The murder took place on a smallholding in Spitzkop on the Koster road on Friday 1 April 2016.
Mavungu was sentenced to an effective ten years’ imprisonment by the Rustenburg Regional Court on 12 January 2017.
The couple had an argument. Mavungu assaulted his girlfriend and left her for dead. A passerby discovered her only the following morning. She died in hospital a week later, due to the assault injuries she sustained.
The Rustenburg station commander Brigadier Gertrude Modise welcomed the sentence and further commended detective Mawila for his excellent investigative work.
