BEREA - A Ha Mots'eremeli woman who cut off the genitals of a 16-year-old girl, accusing her of divulging secrets about initiation processes was on March 14 slapped with a one-year jail term by the Berea Magistrate's Court.

According to police reports, Pulane Sepheka, 24, assaulted the teenager from the same village after she was overheard telling other people how initiation processes were conducted.

Police spokesperson, Superintendent Clifford Molefe told a press conference on Monday that Sepheka overpowered the young girl and cut off part of her genitals as punishment for revealing the secrets.
