SABC presenter’s husband back in court


The estranged husband of SABC News presenter, Dimakatso Ratselane, is set to make his first appearance at the regional court in Bloemfontein today on several charges after the brutal attack on his wife.

OFM News reports, Mackenzie Raletsane’s case was postponed to today, in his absentia last month after he failed to make it to the court due to s COVID-19 scare at the correctional facility where he is in custody.

He was slapped with an additional charge of assault. Mackenzie, who was apprehended for allegedly tabbing Dimakatso multiple times, is now facing several charges including assault, kidnapping, attempted murder, and the possession of an illegal firearm and ammunition.

The state said investigations into the matter have now been completed and the state will proceed with the case in the Regional Court.

Mackenzie was arrested in Ennerdale in Gauteng. His arrest came after Dimakatso was found lying in a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds in Bloemfontein. Mackenzie and Dimakatso are said to have quarrelled on their way to fetch their children in Phase 2. She was later found by friends and residents in the Dinaweng area near a popular tavern and was subsequently sent to Pelonomi Netcare Hospital.
