Finally! Tebogo Elijah Sepale has been arrested

The ANC ward councillor in Kanana Township, near Orkney has been arrested for two counts of statutory rαpe. Tebogo Sepale (40) is also facing a crimen injuria case.

This week, Tebogo Sepale was allegedly seen being intimate with a boy in a video that went viral on various social media platforms. Also, pictures depicting his facing were circulated on social media platforms, where a boy was allegedly seen su_cking his man_hood.

The North West police spokesperson, Brig Sabata Mokgwabone said: “The Klerksdorp Family Violence, Child Protection and Sεxual Offences (FCS) Unit is investigating a case of crimen injuria and two separate counts of statutory rape. The cases were registered at Kanana Police Station respectively.

“In the crimen injuria case, registered on 5 May 2023, the suspect allegedly shared a nυde picture of his private parts with the complainant. In the second and separate case, but involving the same suspect, two counts of statutory rαpes were laid on 6 May 2023, by the parents of two boys, both aged 15.”

Mokgwabone further urged the public to refrain from re-circulating the video. He added that the investigation into the incidents continues and the suspect is expected to appear before the court soon.

“The members of the community and civil society organisations are requested to exercise patience and allow the police to conduct investigations.

“In the meantime, we are not aware of allegations that the police refused to assist the complainant in the crimen injuria case. Thus, we request those making allegations to lodge a formal complaint for investigation,” said Mokgwabone.

Finally! Tebogo Elijah Sepale has been arrested Suspended From ANC

Meanwhile, the ANC in the North West said it has noted with shock a video of one of its public representatives engaged in a sεxual act. The ANC provincial secretary, Louis Diremelo said, they have received a number of complaints from various women against the said public representative.

“We are also aware that one of his victims has opened a case against him with law enforcement agencies. So, rising from this despicable behaviour, the ANC has suspended the membership of Sepale with immediate effect.

“Therefore, he will not be allowed to participate in any ANC activities. This suspension will hold until the outcomes of the disciplinary process. Sepale is suspended in terms of Rule 25.17.4 of the Constitution of the ANC,” Diremelo said.

He said this behaviour goes against their values and commitment to building a cohesive society, in which all people are treated with respect and dignity. Diremelo said, therefore, the ANC will not stand idle when such tendencies rear their ugly face.

“We will act immediately and swiftly to root out such behaviour. As ANC, we convey our sympathies to the victims of this act and call on those who have not come forward, to do so.

“We further apologise to all members of society and assure them that this act goes against our values,” he said.
