Donald Sebolai arrested in Soweto


After almost a week of searching, R50 000 reward for finding him and a plea from his mother, Jozi FM DJ Donald Sebolai was arrested today in Dube Soweto and charged with murdering his girlfriend Rachel ‘Dolly’ Tshabalala.

Donald who entertained his listeners every day between 9 am-12 midday Jozi FM presented the popular Women’s Lifestyle Show. The show which is one of the most popular on the station talks about women’s issues ranging from health to relationships. The show made him some kind of loved ‘ladies man’, that is why when news broke over a week ago that Donald had allegedly stabbed, killed and left Rachel locked in a Jabulani flat the listeners and Soweto residence were in shock.

On monday 7 July in a desperate attempt to make amends between the Tshabalala and Sebolai families , Donald’s mother Elizabeth Sebolai reached out to her son through media. She begged her son to please come and hand himself over to the police.

Rachel who was stabbed to death will be laid to rest in Soweto on Saturday 12 July.
