Photos: Police launch manhunt for man who murdered his 26-year-old girlfriend and her mother in South Africa

Limpopo police, South Africa have launched a manhunt for a man who went on the run after he allegedly shot dead his 26-year-old traffic officer girlfriend and her mother.

Provincial police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe said the manhunt was launched after Tshepi Kotelo and her mother Makila Chileki ‚62‚ were found dead inside their home in Ntwane Village near Dennilton last Sunday, August 27.

Ngoepe said both Tshepi and Chileki had multiple gunshot wounds when they were discovered. He said Tshepi’s official firearm and two magazines were also missing. Tshepi was working as a traffic officer at the Globlersdal Traffic Station in Sekhukhune.

“It is alleged that the suspect confronted the two deceased‚ shot them and fled the scene‚” Ngoepe said.

He said preliminary investigations revealed that the suspect was Tshepi’s boyfriend who fled the scene in a green Toyota Conquest. Ngoepe said the car was later found abandoned at the Siyabuswa petrol filling station. He urged members of the public to come forward with information.

New details said the suspect had been updating his Facebook timeline with messages supporting anti-women abuse campaigns.

On the day of the tragic incident, at exactly1.36am he posted this message: "Do for love be a brother 4 love life."

Three minutes later, his timeline was updated with a picture of himself walking two fierce-looking dogs.

A day before he murdered the women, at 8.52am, his Facebook update was a loving picture of the couple attending a public event. The photo is framed with anti-women abuse message.

Kotelo's family told Sowetan on Tuesday that she had sought a protection order against the suspect after he had beaten her up more than once.

But the man's social media profile paints him as someone supporting the campaign against violence on women.

The man, who is in his 30s, had used profile picture frames supporting the cause at least three times this year.

In other updates, the man posted lovebirds pictures of himself and Kotelo, accompanied by messages such as "Respect women" and "These queen gives me love so I protect her. Guys be man enough ... stop the ongoing abuse ..."

On August 14, he posted: "When you love someone just fight for her no matter how hard it is cos love is power ..."

But a post four days later, at 12.18am, suggested trouble in paradise: "I suppose I could just walkaway"

Marriage: A school of learning, discovery

By Pastor Okokon Ating I have been enlightened that marriage is an insti-tution established by God which no student has gra-duated from. Once an in-dividual is able to obtain admission into this sch-ool, one keeps on learning till death. In the school of marriage every student is a novice. No matter how highly educated one is, he/she has a blank knowledge compared with the normal academic attainment.                                                   wedding ring
There are many mysteries embedded in marriage unknown to the unlearned heart. Couples do not know marriage but learn and study it. That is, cou-ples learn and study it when they come into the practical aspect of it. I came in contact with a young lady who was busy attending marriage semin-ars and reading several books on marriage. Atten-ding seminars and reading books on marriage are good, I told her; but where you can know and be pr-oud of living confidently in marriage is when you enter into the reality of marriage. This is w…
