Johannesburg - A 20-year-old man has handed himself over to police in connection with a murder, North West police said on Tuesday.

Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone said the man handed himself in at the Itsoseng police on Monday, following a case of murder which was reported at the weekend.

"The suspect arrived at the station accompanied by her mother after the alleged murder of a 22-year-old, Thato Mogotsi," said Mokgwabone.

He said Mogotsi was stabbed in the left side of the neck and died on arrival at a local clinic on Saturday.

The man was expected to appear in the Itsoseng Magistrates' Court on Tuesday.

    Aih, WTF is wrong with the youth today. Didnt we as taxpayers fund an organisation that goes by the name of the Youth Development something....or was the money misappropriated?

    'n MAN handed himself in' 'the suspect . . . .was accompanied by HER mother' Transfestite maybe?

    This might not fix what was done wrong, but look on the better side that he trusted enough in his family to confide and his family is teaching him to take responsibility for what was done wrong. Yes, it does not justify anything, but the family of the victim can get some form of closure. The 'youth development' might be available, but nobody ever plans how things will turn out and when they might need help before the event actually happens. This does not in any way mean I condone what was done wrong and the life that was lost.

    Am I reading correctly? "The suspect arrived at the station accompanied by HER mother after the alleged murder of a 22-year-old, Thato Mogotsi," said Mokgwabone. and then further on "The MAN was expected to appear..." That aside, at least he did the honourable thing and handed himself over.

      I agree. On top of this, News24 - the picture you have used is irrelevant and tasteless. It looks too stupid to be a screenshot from a B-grade horror movie. What kind of point are you making? Are you trying to fill space? Ugh.
