Northern Cape police spokesperson Brigadier Mohale Ramatseba said that the man, Moleko Maoka, 37, from Itireleng in Pampierstad, allegedly murdered Joel Modiegi in Seoding on January 8, 2017.

“Maoka, along with a co-accused, Gopolong Maoka, 36, took out an insurance policy in the name of the deceased. It is alleged that six months after the killing they tried to claim from the insurance company. After a thorough investigation the accused were connected to the murder,” said Ramatseba.
