Gomolemo Legae-vert

Teenager r@pes and stabs girlfriend 25 times and burns her over a s.e.x position row. Karabo Bahurutshe,19, gave spine-chilling testimony and told the court that he killed his girlfriend Gomolemo Legae from Seweding village because he did not want to go to jail after she threatened to open a case of r@pe against him. Through his legal representative, Bahurutshe told the court that it had all started at a tavern where he was drinking alcohol and smoking dagga.

A teenager who stabbed an 18-year-old girl 25 times, and after realising that she was still alive, set her alight, has pleaded guilty to charges of r@pe and murder in the North West high court.

He said while at the tarven, Legae arrived with her friends and later told him that she wanted to have s.e.xual intercourse with him. Bahurutshe then told the court that Legae changed her mind after he told her that they wouldn’t have s.e.x at his place but in the streets. Bahurutshe said he then took out a knife and forced her to undress and r@ped her.

“I always knew that my conduct was unlawful and punishable,” he said. He said after the ordeal, Legae threatened to open a case of r@pe against him. “I did not want to go to jail. I started stabbing her several times,” Bahurutshe said.

Bahurutshe said he then realised that even after he had stabbed her 25 times, Legae was still alive. He said he left her lying on the ground and walked to the nearby petrol station and bought petrol in a 2 litre bottle.

He said he poured it on her body. “I knew that stabbing her and setting her body alight may result in her death but nevertheless I did it,” he told the court. Legae’s family cried uncontrollably as the details came out.

After the court adjourned, Legae’s aunt Gadifele Mashetla said she was happy that Bahurutshe pleaded guilty. “At least now there is a green light. I want a harsher sentence for him. I want him to go to jail for the rest of his life,” she said.

She said a few weeks after Legae was killed, her father took his life because he could not handle his daughter’s death and the manner in which she had died.

“We lost three family members because of this boy. It was not only Gomolemo’s father who died. Her grandmother also died after her father killed himself. We are hurt,” she said.

Justice F Snyman rolled over the case to Friday for the legal representatives to make their submissions.
