Shock over teen's senseless killing

By Bafana Mahlangu | Nov 12, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 65 ]

A KOSTER family is baffled and shocked by the senseless killing of their troubled 15-year-old daughter, Kefilwe Seabelo, at her home.

The discovery of her personal diary, which contained two unreported entries about rape, was even more devastating.

Kefilwe's naked body was discovered by her best friend, Reneilwe* after she had approached a neighbour and told them of her concerns. Kefilwe had been blindfolded, raped and had a sock stuffed into her mouth.

According to her mother, Maria Seabelo, police were alerted after Reneilwe made the gruesome discovery when she broke down the front door to gain entry to the house with the help of an elderly neighbour last Tuesday afternoon.

Kefilwe's mother said she was devastated by the discovery of her daughter's personal diary.

"The entries were in her handwriting. I am still shocked because it had the dates and where the rapes occurred. How she kept such a secret is beyond me," Seabelo said.

"My daughter had her shortcomings but she did not deserve to die like this, especially not at home where we thought it was safe. I cannot describe how I feel right now."

Seabelo said Reneilwe last saw her daughter the night before in the company of her estranged boyfriend at about 10pm.

There was a scuffle between them.

Kefilwe and Reneilwe were best friends and classmates at a primary school in Koster.

"Reneilwe told me she had a feeling that something was wrong with her friend when she did not answer her calls. After few attempts her cellphone went dead," Seabelo said.

"She told me she could not sleep that night and she was even more worried when Kefilwe did not answer her door in the morning when she came to fetch her to go to school."

Kefilwe was alone at home when she was attacked. Her mother had gone to Mahikeng for her partner's funeral.

Seabelo said she was on her way back from the funeral when she got a frantic call to hurry home.

"Nobody told me what was going on until I found my home swamped with police and neighbours."

North West police spokesman Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said the police in Koster have registered a case of murder after a 15-year-old girl from Selosesha Section was found with her face covered with a cloth, raped and murdered last Tuesday.

"It is suspected that the deceased could have been murdered on Monday night," Ngubane said. - mahlanguba @sowetan.co.za

Some parents are just ignorant,i mean how can a 15 year girl still be roaming around at 10 pm with so the called boyfriend
during exam time, this is just worst parenting.Her parents should also be accountable for their daughters death and whoever did this to her should face the full might of the law.

The main thing is we cannot separate this event the political situation in our country.I still maintain the ANC government should carry the blame here.
Koster is one of the poor and under developed rural areas in the country.There are no recreational facilities in that area.There are no health care facilities,and if there is any clinic ,it will not be easily accessable.So you can imagine what happens in an area where alcohol and drug abuse is the only recreation.There are so many taverns and shebeens and people engage in unprotected alcohol induced sexual intercourse.Children at an early of 13 -15 are lured by men in engaging in sexual activities.Some of the kids are orphans whom their parents died of AIDS.Men exploit the situation and promise these kids money,hence we see so many rapes and killing of children in this area.So many icidents went unreported.
Lack of employment is the other main reasons,people resort to finding the easiest ways of getting money,hence increased levels of crime.
These children are not reporting the rapes because of lack of protection from the police and society.,they are afraid of the perpetrators.Corruption in the police force is another reason the children do not report these cases,because the perpetrators are known to be friends to the poilce.The stigmatization of rape is also another reasons these children do not report these cases ,they end being the victims of circumstances as is always the case in this country that women invited being raped by wearing miniskirts.

Ja, I know ANC government with their satanic laws. I am saying satanic because their laws are contrary to what the Blble teaches. Who knows, maybe the anti-Christ is going to come from South Africa, kikikikiki. Just a thought, it looks like we are the worst country in terms of immorality.
