Tshepo Mosikili who also goes by the alias Daniel Valentino, appeared in the Makwane Magistrate’s Court in the Eastern Free State today on a charge of murder. Prosecutor Patrick Kolaone says the accused abandoned his bail application and remains in custody.
The body of ten-year-old Matshediso Mphuthi who went missing on Christmas morning was found in a wash basin in the bathroom of the accused’s rented RDP house later that day.
Mosikili was arrested a few days later after a tip-off and was found hiding in a dog kennel at a home near a shopping complex. His case has been postponed to February 16th to allow for further investigations.
