“At first he misled the neighbours in believing that his wife disappeared with a boyfriend. He drafted a false letter with a message from a fictitious boyfriend arranging to meet his wife at the stock commonage near the murder scene.”


“The police at Bloemspruit Police Station arrived at the scene and discovered the lifeless body of Kopano’s wife with strangulation marks visible on the neck. A piece of electrical cord was lying next to the body. The scene was processed and the investigation started.”

Makhele says During the investigation process Kopano voluntarily agreed to pointing out at the scene and later gave confession statement in front of the Magistrate. Kopano Nelson Tjobo was at the end condemned to serve time in prison for the murder of his legally wedded wife, Sefora Tjobo.
