Man accused of killing a ten-year-old Bluegumbosch girl on Christmas Day abandons bail.



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.
