A person has been charged with the murder of Thapelo Makuthle, a gay man who identified as transgender was brutally murdered on June 8, with her head being almost severed.
The suspect, named Sizwe Tajini, resides with his father in the village of Seoding, the same of the victim, near Kuruman, Northern Cape, South Africa.
During a court hearing that was held today in Kuruman, Taijini was said to have admitted to carrying out the murder alone.
Speaking to PinkNews.co.uk, Shaine Griqua, director of the LGBT rights group LEGBO Northern Cape reported that Taijin “stayed silent most of the time and showed no remorse.
“He also made contemptuous, arrogant facial expressions and body posturing at the LGBT activists who were in attending the court hearing,” he said.
