The purported murder of Tshenolo Mabote by her ex-boyfriend occurred on January 22, 2023 at Marikana, Rustenburg.

The 11-month-old son of Tshenolo’s suspect, Sasa Thomas, is also his child.

Her ex-boyfriend allegedly went to Tshenolo’s house where he attacked her and repeatedly stoned her with cement bricks.

Tshenolo was beaten until he realised she was unconscious, at which point he carried her by her legs through the streets to his house while continuing to beat her. The man repeatedly pointed a revolver at passing neighbours who sought to step in.

When he realised Tshenolo was unconscious, he then dragged her by her legs on the streets, continuing to beat her, while walking to his home. When neighbours tried to intervene, the suspect kept pointing a gun at them.

He then took Tshenolo to the hospital, where she was transferred to another hospital. Tshenolo succumbed to her injuries on Monday, January 23. 

The ex-boyfriend was arrested at the hospital.

In a statement on Wednesday, January 24, 2023,  the African National Congress Youth League, ANCYL, in Kgetleng Sub Region, condemned the murder. 

“It is with absolute sadness, anger and pain to all our young people in the region to learn of this gross act GBV… after we learnt the passing of TSHENOLO PHANCHO MABOTE who was brutal murdered in her home weekend n she passed away Monday,” the statement read.

“We are not professionalised or trained to deal with matters of this nature and magnitude. However, if the public exposes such acts on GBV on social media and screenshots shared online by friends of the victim or anything to go by, one wonders what more links and leaks are needed for the SAPS to give this kind of cases a priority they deserve.

“The ANC in Kgetleng sub region mazista ward 6 condemns any form of GBV and femicide and we further call for the revival of our street committees, community policing forums and ward committees to intensify the fight against GBV in our localities.

The time to hold perpetrators accountable for the micro aggression of toxic masculinity. The embers of GBV begin with a whisper, a joke, a comment and word.

“We call upon young people of kgetleng sub region to congregate at the magistrate court date and venue as a form of support to the victim’s family.” 

The deceased’s cousin, Reabetswe Rea Rakuba, shared a photo of the suspect, demanding justice. 

“Hi guys, this is my cousin Tshenolo Mabote. She is yet another stat. She was brutally beaten to death by her then boyfriend. GBV has hit home and it has left a permanent mark. Justice needs to be served.” she wrote.
