Ntuthuko Shoba axed from JSE job

The alleged mastermind behind the killing of Tshegofatsho Pule has been fired from his job at the Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE).

Ntuthuko Shoba, an analyst, was arrested earlier this year over accusations he orchestrated the murder of his 8-month pregnant girlfriend.


Pule and her unborn baby died a harrowing death last year when she was stabbed and hanged from a tree in a veld in the Durban Deep area, west of Johannesburg.


There are reports that Shoba had used a company phone to contact the hitman Muzikayise Malephane.


But the JSE said it could not comment on matters relating to the trial.


"All queries related to the trial should be directed to the police and prosecution team as they are the appropriate entities to comment on the investigation/case," said the JSE in a statement on Friday.


The stock exchange added it would continue to cooperate with police in their investigations.


"The JSE has assisted the SAPS in their investigation, and it will continue to fully cooperate with the investigative authorities if and when required to do so."


Shoba appeared at the Roodepoort Magistrate's Court on Thursday in his second bid at bail.


New evidence has since come to light pointing at Pule's fear that the father of her child would harm her and her baby.


The case has been postponed to 26 April for arguments from the defence.
