Gang leader murdered, brain splashed to the ground

A man was killed on Tuesday in an alleged gang-related brawl that is believed to be a long-standing battle between two groups in Ga-Seleka, outside Lephalale, Limpopo.

Villagers are still in shock after the alleged leader of Bad Company gang, Kgohla “Black Jack” Majabibodu, 30, was stabbed repeatedly with bites, spears and axes and hit in the head with stones, leaving his brain splashed on the ground.

As police investigate the incident, sources say the murder took place after a long rivalry between the two gangs.

“The revenge was supposed to take place on Valentine’s Day, exactly one year after their member was killed by the Bad Company gang. However, they didn’t find, Black Jack, until the next day and killed him in the same way his gang did to their member, according to the source.

Limpopo police spokesman, Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo confirmed that Majadibodu  was brutally murdered by a group of people armed with assortment of weapons.

He said it’s unclear what led to the murder, but police investigations are continuing.

“The Majadibodu and two of his friends were walking towards local Tuck shop in Dark City (Seleka 2) when they heard people scream, warning that a group of people was coming to attack them,” Mojapelo said.

He said the victim and those with him ran to a friend’s house and locked themselves inside.

“A group of people surrounded the house and started breaking down doors and windows. The victim then jumped out the window, trying to escape, but the group grabbed and stabbed him with spears, knives and stoned him to death, ”Mojapelo said.

A source told Lephalale Express that a community member who could not be identified for fear of being a victim was treated for shock at the local clinic after witnessing a horrific murder.

The second victim was also brutally attacked and taken to hospital in critical condition. The third victim escaped.

Limpopo Police Commissioner Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe issued a strong warning against vigilantism, saying people should refrain from taking the law into their own hands. Hadebe ordered the killers to be located and brought to justice.

Brigadier Mojapelo said police had arrested 12 people, including three 17-year-olds, in connection with the killing.
