Wife of pastor arrested for murder

The wife of a pastor from Thembalethu was arrested at her home in Thembalethu on Friday 21 July 2018, and appeared in court on a charge of murder of the 25 year old Hlompho Mohapi. Mohapi's body was discovered by a fisherman near Voëlklip in Heralds Bay on 8 July 2018. She suffered several stab wounds and her throat was partially slit.

It is believed that Mohapi was abducted and murdered after being offered a lift by 3 men after she was promised a job interview at George airport.

Two days after the discovery of Mohapi's body, police arrested a 28 year old suspect, Phumlani Qusheka, who was in possession of a cell phone belonging to the victim.

Two weeks later, police arrested 30 year old pastor Melisizwe Monqo after it came to light that he took out an insurance police on the life of the victim. A vehicle found in his possession was also confiscated.

All three suspects will appear in court again on Wednesday 25 July 2018, when it is expected that the court will combine the charges. They will remain in custody pending a formal bail application.

Mohapi was laid to rest on Saturday 21 July 2018 in Thembalethu.
