A 19-year-old schoolboy has been charged with murder after allegedly stabbing his girlfriend’s mother to death in Ntambanana, near Empangeni, KwaZulu-Natal.
According to a police report, Norah Ndwandwe (56) went to a neighbours house looking for her primary school-aged daughter who had been missing for a week, Zululand Observer reported.
The mother, together with her son and another young man went to the suspect’s house to look for the girl, but found her at a neighbours’ house where the suspect had hidden her.
A neighbour claimed that the suspect had stabbed Ndwandwe to death during an ensuing argument.
Ndwandwes’ son also sustained serious injuries during the incident, and was transported to the Ngwelezana Hospital.
The neighbour, whose house the girl was found in, escaped with minor stab wounds.
Empangeni police spokesperson Captain Mbongeni Mdlalose said the suspect was later arrested, and also faces charges of attempted murder.
In a separate incident, a Rustenburg taxi driver was sentenced to 25 years in jail by the Rustenburg Magistrates’ Court in October for killing his girlfriend and her mother.
The accused, Seuntjie David Nakedi was found guilty of killing Tshepiso Moilwe and her mother Annah Moilwe at their home in March 2013.
