The incident occurred at Makonde Shadani village outside Thohoyandou in Limpopo.

Departmental spokesperson Joshua Kwapa has condemned the murder.

“We are appealing to members of the community to help the police with information which will lead to the arrest and prosecution of the suspect. We have dispatched a team of social workers to the family to provide psychosocial support and will continue to provide necessary support following this brutal murder,” says Kwapa.
