Twenty-three-year-old Thapelo Makutle—who "identified as gay and transgender"—was an outreach worker with Legbo Northern Cape. Makutle's body was discovered on June 9 in their home near Kuruman, Northern Cape province. Makutle's throat was slashed, the head was "nearly severed", and their body was dismembered. Jajini was arrested in July 2012. Activists say "the alleged killer [is] arrogant and [has] appeared to show no remorse" in court proceedings.
