Levy Nongoma (28) of Tubatse in Burgersfort, Limpopo appeared in Praktiseer Magistrates’ Court on Monday for raping and killing a six-year-old girl.
It is alleged that on 3 December 2021, the child was playing with other children in the street when Nongoma lured her and left with her.
The mother of the child alerted the community when she failed to see her child. The police were then informed and they commenced with the manhunt. After a few hours the girl’s shoe was found in Nongoma’s bedroom. The body of the child was discovered in the neighbour’s yard.
