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"

Scary News About Your Cellphone

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.

That’s a lot of cell phones and cell phone users. But what’s even more fascinating about all these mobile devices is the behaviour that surrounds them: The average cellphone owner checks their phone 110 times a day, or about nine times each hour; and 46 percent of smartphone owners say “they couldn’t live without” their phones
