According to police spokesperson Hlulani Mashaba, the incident unfolded during a heated domestic dispute between the sisters.

“During the trial, the court heard how the accused attacked her twin sister after they got into a heated argument and stabbed her with a knife for several times until she died at their residence, and she further chopped her twin sister with an axe before fleeing the scene.
