Ten more arrests are expected to be made regarding the murder of 22-year old Thoriso Themane, whose body was found dumped on Erasmus and Cestrum Avenue, in Flora Park, Polokwane, reports Polokwane Review.
According to preliminary police investigations, police spokesperson Col Moatshe Ngoepe said the deceased was bludgeoned to death in a mob attack.
A video, also doing the rounds on social media, shows a group of schoolkids, allegedly from Capricorn High School, dragging Themane’s lifeless body.
Several attempts have been made to the school, however, we are still awaiting comment.
“A suspect has been taken in for questioning and a case of murder has been opened,” Ngoepe said.
News of Themane’s murder has started the hashtag #JusticeForThoriso, which is currently trending on social media.
The amount of violence that is escalating amongst the youth in Polokwane is shocking????????. Imagine the audacity murdering someone in cold blood for some sort of sick status and bragging about it after????, im shook????. #JusticeforThoriso

The one kid said nothing will happen to him because the dad is a top cop in Limpopo.
This could be him wielding power.
