Screen Shot 2013-10-19 at 3.42.50 PMAccording to Sapa, police in Gauteng, South Africa have confirmed that a 22-year-old man was arrested in Tokoza in connection with the horrific and brutal murder of a young lesbian, Duduzile Zozo.

The man is scheduled to appear for charges, in the Palm Ridge Magistrates’ Court on Monday, according to Lieutenant Colonel Lungelo Dlamini.

“Police had been following up information since her body was found. Several suspects were arrested for questioning and released,” he said.

On June 30, the half-naked body of 26-year-old Zozo was discovered in Tokoza, Ekurhuleni, near her family home. Her mother Thuziwe Zozo told activists at the time of the funeral that  she suspected her daughter was killed because she was a lesbian. The case received widespread attention after press noted that a toilet brush was inserted into the victim’s vagina, a factor pointing to a motive of anti-lesbian hate.
