The police in the Free State have confirmed that the two unknown suspects in the murder case of Bloemfontein farmer, Lucas Mokoena, are still at large.

This despite police spokesperson Peter Kareli telling OFM News last week Thursday that the men’s arrest would be imminent. Mokoena was killed at his home in Fichardt Park last week Monday and his wife, Kelebogile, who police also regard as a suspect, was arrested shortly thereafter. It remains unknown at this point when the arrest of the two men, believed to be Mokoena’s killers, will be made. However, Kareli says Mokoena’s 51-year-old wife will make her appearance at the Local Magistrate’s Court later this week. This after she was arrested last week Wednesday after investigations found that she was positively linked to the murder.

Mokoena’s wife appeared at the Bloemfontein Magistrate’s Court on Thursday last week following her arrest the day prior. She is now scheduled to appear at the court again on Thursday for her formal bail application. She faces conspiracy to murder charges. Police are yet to reveal Kelebogile’s involvement in the murder as well as the motive for the crime.

Details of Mokoena’s murder remain sketchy as police refuse to divulge more information, however, an earlier statement by the police revealed that Mokoena arrived at his house in Fichardt Park, Bloemfontein, on Monday last week, where he found his wife in their main bedroom. As he went to the bathroom, he was then confronted by two men, after which a scuffle ensued. The deceased was then dragged back to the bedroom where he was shot in the head in the presence of his wife. The suspects left the scene with the deceased’s vehicle, an undisclosed amount of money and cell phones. The vehicle was later found abandoned in Lourier Park.
