Polokwane- The two suspects Lesiba Molokomme (31) and an 18 year old boy, involved in the kidnapping of a female educator have appeared before the Phalala magistrate mourt on Monday.

They were charged with cases of common robbery, kidnapping, theft of motor vehicle and rape and were denied bail. Their cases were postponed until the 3rd of December 2018 for further police investigations and for a formal bail application.


The duo was arrested last Saturday during an Intelligence-driven joint operation conducted in the Lephalale Cluster composed of various Police Units.

Police say the operation followed these suspects around the clock since Friday morning until they tracked them down at two separate areas outside Lephalale.
