Tenth suspect arrested in connection with Thoriso Themane murder


The teenager was taken to the Polokwane police station by his parents on Friday.

A tenth teenager believed to be involved in the brutal murder of Thoriso Themane has been arrested.

eNCA reports that the 13-year-old was taken to the Polokwane police station by his parents on Friday, and is due to appear in court on Monday.

28-year-old Themane was allegedly murdered by a group of pupils from Capricorn High School in Limpopo last month.

The case shocked the country as videos of the murder circulated on social media, and one of the suspects boasted that his father, a policeman, would protect him.

The attack took place in Flora Park, a leafy suburb near the central business district of Polokwane, last weekend. According to the police’s information, Themane had been arguing with the group of pupils who were at the school over the weekend.

They then allegedly brutally assaulted him, throwing stones and dragging him on to a public road, while several recorded videos and cracked jokes during the assault. The bruised and bloody Themane was later discovered by motorists, who called the police.

He was laid to rest last weekend.
