A Teenager Accused Of Killing Girlfriend Granted Bail

An 18-year-old teenager Khodani Takalani from Vondwe village outside Thohoyandou was granted bail of R3000 by the Thohoyandou Magistrates' Court in Limpopo. It is alleged that Khodani stabbed his girlfriend Tshinakaho Munyai (15)  to death on 5 December 2021.

In granting the accused bail, the court gave him the following conditions: 

• The applicant must relocate from Vondwe Phalama to Makwarela

• He must not go back to Vondwe Phalama until the completion of the case

• He must not interfere with the state witnesses and the complainant

During the investigation, Khodani deceived the police that they were walking on the street when they were confronted by an unknown man armed with a knife. He ran away while the unknown man dragged the deceased into the bushes. However, the accused was arrested on a murder charge two days later after a meticulous investigation by the investigating officer.

The lifeless body of the deceased was later discovered by members of the public.

The matter was postponed to 25 February 2022 for further investigations.
