Maponyane said:  I will forever remember your laughter, as I jokingly called you Mariah Carey. When Matshepo could not be located the next morning, together with their mother they decided to head to places she frequently visited. You always shared your love for music and had a positive and vibrant attitude about your dreams. The suspects are said to be from KaNyamazane and the firearms are suspected to have been used in the shooting of a businessman and loan shark in Tekwane South and a young man in Lekazi. He said Malefane was always willing to lend a helping hand to her peers at Sunday school. So we went to her maths tutor nearby, who showed us the house.

“I started to pay more attention to the songs she listened to and admired her taste in music. I then got angry and left the room, but my mom told me that they had agreed that the boyfriend would accompany her home. The suspects said they were acquainted with the former MEC of agriculture, who is also [facing] charges of murder. Little did I know that she was saying goodbye.” The funeral was attended by scores of community members, including Malefane’s former high school peers, who punctuated the ceremony with hymns. It has been alleged that Matshepo was in a six-month relationship with a 25-year-old man who lives in the same community. Ward councillor Gift Malapane appealed to the community to remain calm and allow the police to do their work. Mohlala confirmed that Manamela had issued a statement appreciating the efforts of police in their bid to arrest four male suspects for possession of three unlicensed firearms and ammunition, but said he had not mentioned Msibi’s name or release the suspects’ photos.

The body of 19-year-old Matshepho Malefane was found hanging from a tree in Soweto on 5 January.” TimesLIVE.

Although Matshepo’s death remains a mystery, I would like to plead with young people to always listen to their elders and be disciplined when chasing their dreams,” said Malapane. He said they were willing to work with the community to strengthen community policing forums (CPFs). Childhood friend Palesa Moloi said she was devastated: I will miss her smile the most. Sifiso Mpila, a third victim of the shooting, survived. “We have supported our CPFs because those are the people who can stop these things from happening at an immediate stage.” Former EFF Gauteng chairperson Mandisa Mashego said Malefane’s family deserves justice. Police spokesperson Mavela Masondo confirmed that police were investigating and that an inquest was being held, further saying that they were waiting for postmortem results to aid ­their investigation. Mashego, who was a mayoral candidate of the Abantu Batho Congress in the 2021 local government elections, said she would be supporting the family to ensure that the incident is properly investigated. Nkosi has since been arrested and charged with the murders of off-duty police officer Detective Constable Nkosinathi Lucky Ngwenya and Jafta Mnisi on October 16.

Mashego said:  We are going to put up a fight against the corrupt criminal justice system and we will support the family through. READ:  “He knew that the family was looking for her but did not bother to inform them of her whereabouts,” said a community member. Delivering the .
