VENTERSDORP – The mother of an alleged murderer and rapist has refused to stand by her son, saying justice must take its course.
Pule Botlhokwane is charged with raping and murdering Diseko “Gift” Makau.
Friends strongly believe Makau was attacked because she was openly gay.
The 24-year-old’s half-naked body was found with a wire around her neck and a hose pipe shoved down her throat.
Matshidiso Botlhokwane believes her son is responsible for the violent attack.
Makau will be laid to rest over the weekend.
