A 28-year-old man, arrested for the murder of Precious Ramabulana, was allegedly found in possession of her cellphone, bloodstained clothes and a sharp object, said the family.

The family told SowetanLIVE's sister publication TimesLIVE the man was caught after he was tracked down using Ramabulana's cellphone.

“Police informed us that the man claimed to be Precious's boyfriend. They tracked him down using Precious's other phone. He removed her SIM card and inserted his, they found him with the object he used to stab her and clothes full of blood. DNA tests confirmed that it was Precious's blood,” said family spokesperson Mavis Sitholimela.

Preliminary police investigations revealed that Ramabulana was asleep in her room at Ga-Joel Section in Mokomene when she was stabbed to death. “She called us and told us she was scared because there was someone walking around her window. We asked if she had called the police and she said yes, she had asked a neighbour, who is also friend, to contact them.”

Police arrived at Ramabulana's locked room while she was still alive. They broke in and, while speaking to her, she succumbed to her injuries, according to Sitholimela. “Sadly, this is compounded by the fact that Precious was murdered during a time when the men around the country are challenged to mobilise against gender-based violence, the abuse of children and people with disabilities,” said Masemola.Would you like to comment on this article or view other readers' comments?
