It has been a year since Kaizer Chiefs skipper and seasoned goalie Itumeleng Khune's sister Mapula Khune was gruesomely murdered and to date, her murder case remains an incomplete puzzle.
According to reports, she was burned beyond recognition in a fire at her grandmother's home in Tshing, Extension 2, North West, where her charred remains were found in her backroom.
Shorty after her passing a 17 year old boy was arrested in connection with her murder. An 'inquest' into her murder later turned into a murder case and assault with the intent to cause grievous bodily harm. Her family has had to endure pain since her brutal murder and they seek justice. According to a post Khune shared on his Instagram stories, they haven't heard anything from the police. " The police in Venterdsdope have not said a thing since and our follow up attempts went in vain."
Another family that recently demanded justice for their son is Thapelo Maropefela's family. His death came the night before his 25th birthday. According to Daily Sun Thapelo was brutally murdered by by three security guards who allegedly assaulted in Maboneng, Johannesburg. The guards allegedly used 'heavy objects' to cause grievous bodily harm to the victim.
“He was brutally assaulted by security guards in Maboneng. They bludgeoned him causing grievous bodily harm. He died from the wounds inflicted on him. We will miss his infectious smile and calmness in difficult situations," said his uncle.
His mom celebrated his birthday and penned a heartfelt message to him that brought a lot of people to tears. "25 years ago you brought happiness I never imagined possible into our lives. Today 8 grown Zimbabwean men gave me the deepest pain I ever thought possible. They hurt my child so bad! I thank God almighty for giving me these short years with you. I can’t say rest because you had so much energy! So much zeal for life! I cant! I just can’t! God will bring justice to all even though my child will never be back,"
