Written by Fred on June 17, 2020
South African police have arrested a 31-year-old man for the murder of a woman whose stabbed body was found hanging from a tree last week, triggering a national outcry.
Twenty-eight-year-old Tshegofatso Pule was eight months pregnant.
The man is due to appear in court later on Wednesday.
After her death, South African President Cyril Ramaphosa said the culture of silence around gender-based violence had to end.
Ms Pule went missing on 4 June and four days later a member of the public found her body in the Johannesburg suburb of Roodepoort.
She was hanging from a tree and had been stabbed through the chest.
There was a wave of outrage in South Africa after her death and the hashtag #JusticeForTshego trended on Twitter.
