Domestic related killings condemned!

RIBA CROSS– Acting Provincial Commissioner of the South African Police Service in Limpopo, Major General Jan Scheepers has condemned in the strongest possible terms, continuous acts of domestic related attacks and killings prevalent in some parts of the Province.

The condemnation emanates from an incident that occured in the early Saturday morning in the Tubatse area outside Burgersfort.

Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe, Limpopo Provincial Police Spokesperson, said It was alleged that on 23 February 2019 at about 01:00, three (03) people died in what was believed to be a love triangle at rented rooms at Riba cross village.

Ngoepe said a middle aged man of about 34 poured an inflammable substance in a room of a 35 year old man and set it alight.

“The victim was rescued by other tenants and took him to hospital but he died soon after he was admitted,” said Ngoepe.

Police said the suspect proceeded to the alleged girlfriend’s room, broke the window, jumped inside, removed a two year old baby girl outside and set the room alight. Both the suspect and the girlfriend were burnt to death.

“The child is admitted to hospital for medical treatment.  Cases of arson, two counts of murder and Inquest were opened for further police investigations,” explained Ngoepe.

Ngoepe added the motive behind the incident was not clear but domestic violence may not be ruled out.

“Members of the community are still advised and encouraged to seek professional assistance from the local authorities for intervention in case of any domestic related problems rather than resorting to violence,” concluded General Scheepers.
