    RIP: EFF MP Kenny Motsamai’s teenage daughter raped and poisoned

    EFF Member of Parliament Kenny Motsamai is reported to have lost her teenage daughter who was allegedly raped and poisoned on Monday, 27 June.

    Fourteen-year-old Lindokuhle Makotshi, who was Motsamai’s adopted daughter died yesterday, Wednesday, 29 June, in hospital.

    According to TimesLIVE, the young girl was raped on Monday afternoon by a 25-year-old man who lives in Katlehong, east of Johannesburg. This is the same area where the daughter lived with her sister and grandmother while Kenny Motsamai and his wife live in Sebokeng.


    National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Phindi Mjonondwane confirmed to TimesLIVE that a suspect was arrested in connection with the rape and appeared in court on Wednesday.
    “A murder charge will now be added because the victim was still alive when the suspect made his first court appearance. The prosecution had not been told the victim was allegedly poisoned. The case was postponed for a formal bail application,”


    Motsamai has become the second member of the EFF to lose a daughter in a very ghastly fashion.
    In April, Godrich Gardee, a member of the EFF and lawyer by profession, gruesomely lost his daughter Hilary who was kidnapped, raped, tortured and eventually killed in Mpumalanga.

    A few days later her body was discovered. An intense investigation led to the arrest of suspects that were directly linked to the crime. The suspects, Sipho Mkhatshwa, Philemon Lukhele and Mduduzi Nkala are all facing charges of conspiracy for murder, kidnapping, rape, murder, possession of firearm and defeating the ends of justice.

    Their trial hearing continues in the Mbombela Magistrates’ Court.
