A man was arrested in Tokoza in connection with the murder of lesbian Duduzile Zozo, Gauteng police said today.

The 22-year-old man would appear in the Palm Ridge Magistrates’ Court on Monday, according to Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini.

“Police had been following up information since her body was found. Several suspects were arrested for questioning and released,” he said.

Dlamini said the man was cooperating with the police.

On June 30, the half-naked body of 26-year-old Zozo was discovered in Tokoza, Ekurhuleni.

Her mother Thuziwe Zozo reportedly said she suspected her daughter was killed because she was a lesbian.

Dlamini said the police had been following up information since her body was found.

“A toilet brush was inserted into her vagina. It is suspected that she died of strangulation,” he said.
