Venda university student knifed to death for his phone
But on Friday night, he took a taxi ride that ended his life.
Just before 6 pm on Friday, Kone met a gruesome end when thugs boarded his taxi, stabbed him, and robbed him of his cellphone and his school bag.
He was declared dead after the taxi stopped at Zwikwengani Cross on the R524 road.
The thugs got off and washed their bloodied hands at a tap and allegedly exchanged items of clothing.
But those who saw them recognized them and they are now the subject of a police manhunt.
Kone’s body was left on the tarmac not far from the taxi.
Nevado family spokesperson Pastor Thivhulawi Nevondo said the alleged killers are boys Kone grew up with.
“We can’t even imagine what wrong he did to them that led to his gruesome killing,” said Nevondo.
“We are happy that people have recognized them and for the police to do their job,” he said.
“We now have our trust in the hands of God.”
Nevado said Kone was the only son in the family and that his death has put a lot of strain on them.
Limpopo police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo confirmed the incident and said a murder case has been opened.
“Anyone with information must please contact Detective Capt Dzivhani on 0159617000 or crime stop number 0860010111,” he said.
