Family demands justice after murder of two businesswomen in Limpopo

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The family of one of the two women that were killed at an industrial site in Polokwane, Limpopo, on Saturday says the manner in which they died is shocking.

Aviation finance consultant at Investec Makoena Mabusela and businesswomen Tebogo Mphuti were shot and killed in what police suspect to be a hit.

The two were reportedly targeted inside a luxury vehicle while on a business trip from Midrand in Gauteng.

Mabusela family spokesperson Mmakgabo Ramotshwela says they will not rest until justice is served.

“She died like a criminal, or like a gangster or whatever and she was a decent and respectful young woman. She is leaving behind the husband, a very good husband. She is leaving behind five children, two girls and three boys. We just want them to get the criminals, put them through the justice system and we get justice.”

Victims shot execution-style

The two ladies arrived in Polokwane on Friday night and booked themselves in a lodging facility.

They met with a property agent on Saturday morning, who took them to view a few buildings.

While at one building still in the car, three men approached them and without saying anything, opened the driver’s door and allegedly shot the two ladies dead.

Police say the three suspects then got into a getaway car which was waiting for them a few metres away.

A manhunt for the suspects is still underway.
