The man - who is originally from Mpumalanga but currently based in Sandton - is described as being deeply religious, quiet, and calm.

He was also described by a fellow church-goer as an evangelist, and a God-fearing man who would preach at church, adding that what had happened was a result of the devil attacking him for doing the work of the Lord.

Mokoena and Mantsoe are believed to have dated for seven months prior to her brutal death.
