The sister of late Limpopo business tycoon Theophilus Ramokokono Mphosi says independent forensic reports have confirmed he was poisoned, but the state’s delay in releasing his pathology report is obstructing “what has now become a murder investigation “.

“Independent forensic reports have conclusively ruled out any natural cause and confirmed a crime,” Mphosi’s sister, Moditswi Cindrella Ramokoto, said in a statement released Wednesday.

“It is now even more critical to receive the state pathologist’s report to officially establish the cause of death and move forward with the murder investigation. The delay in the state pathologist’s report prevents us from obtaining justice and closure. We implore authorities to act quickly and help us bring those responsible to justice.
