Johannesburg – Police have confirmed that a 31-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the murder of Tshegofatso Pule.
Pule, 28, was 8-months pregnant at the time of her killing.
Her body was found hanging from a tree in Roodepoort last week.
The suspect was on his way to Mpumalanga when he was arrested.
“We wanted to make sure that we are not charging the wrong person. That is why we didn’t want to rush this,” said the police’s Noxolo Kweza.
She added: “We wouldn’t have done this without the cooperation of the community for which we are very grateful. We are also appealing to the media to give us space to make sure that our case doesn’t fall apart”.
The suspect is expected to appear in Roodepoort Magistrates Court this morning.
