Second #MokoenaMurder arrest to be detailed in court

It is expected that more details on the second arrest in the murder case of Free State farmer and taxi boss, Ntau Lucas Mokoena, will come to light in the suspect’s first appearance in the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Monday.

This comes after the suspect, who is believed to be over the age of thirty, was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning, August 2. Police would not provide additional details on the suspect or the arrest out of fear that it would compromise the investigation into the murder.

It is, however, alleged the suspect is closely acquainted with the deceased’s 51-year-old wife, Kelebogile Mokoena, who is currently in police custody for allegedly orchestrating her husband’s murder on the night of July 8.

It was revealed during her court appearances that she not only hired the hitmen, paying them partly for the murder, but she allegedly poisoned her own dogs to make it easier for the trio to gain access into the couple’s Fichardt Park home. On Thursday, July 18, the nurse, abandoned her bail application.
