The Police in Haenertsburg outside Tzaneen arrested a 27-year-old woman who allegedly murdered her boyfriend at a farm in the Ebenezer area, early on Saturday morning, 20 February 2021.

The deceased, aged 41 was allegedly inside the room with his girlfriend at the compound when they started to argue. Unexpectedly, the suspect produced a sharp object and stabbed him.

Limpopo Police spokesperson Moatshe Ngoepe said afterwards, the victim managed to go out of the room and screamed for help when he fell on the ground and succumbed to his injuries.

“The local community heard someone screaming and came out of their houses and found the deceased lying in a pool of blood. Subsequently, the suspect was overpowered by one of the community members and the instrument used for the murder was also confiscated.”

Ngoepe said the Police were summoned with the Medical Emergency Services. “The victim was certified dead at the scene and the suspect was arrested immediately. The motive behind this incident is believed to be domestic violence.”  

Limpopo Police Commissioner Nneke Ledwaba has condemned this incident with the strongest terms and he advised members of the community to consult with their local professionals in case of any social-related problem rather than resorting to violence.

The suspect will appear in the Tzaneen Magistrate court on Monday, 22 February 2021.
