According to provincial police spokesperson Warrant Officer Mmako Mophiring, the 33-year-old Mookgo Felli Ramateletse from Boiketlo Village in Qwaqwa had been missing since April 10.

The woman is reported to have last spoken to her husband by telephone on the day of her disappearance. However, when he arrived home she was nowhere to be found, IOL reports.


Mophiring said Ramateletse was found with multiple stab wounds to her body.

“The police and Maluti-a-Phofung rescue and fire department retrieved the body of a missing woman, Mookgo Felli Ramateletse, from a septic tank in her yard with multiple stab wounds at about 1.30pm after she was positively identified by her husband, who reported her missing.

“On Sunday, April 16, 2023, Namahadi police, the Station Commander, Phuthaditjhaba Crime Intelligence, Phuthaditjhaba K9 Unit, Phuthaditjhaba Public Order Police and Namahadi Vispol formed a search team looking for the missing person in the Boiketlo area.
