Young mother stabbed to death


Cases of gender-based violence (GBV) continue to escalate at a rapid rate in Tubatse. On Thursday, a 22-year-old woman was stabbed to death by her alleged boyfriend at  Ga Maroga (Ga Moime section).

Naume Sodi was allegedly killed in front of her 1 year old son inside her shack. 
Limpopo SAPS’ spokesperson, Col Moatshe Ngoepe said, “It is alleged that the neighbours were alarmed by the deceased’s frantic screams coming from the shack and immediately went there to investigate. Upon arrival, the man came out running. They then entered the home and were shocked to find the deceased in a pool of blood with open wounds on her body. 
“The police were notified, responded immediately, commenced with the investigations and manhunt ensued to track down the suspect.”
Ngoepe added that a 31-year-old male was later arrested along the R37 after he had been hit by a vehicle while trying to evade arrest. 

“He is presently in hospital for medical treatment, under police guard. A case of murder has been opened and the motive for the killing is still unknown at this stage, but domestic violence cannot be ruled out. 
The provincial commissioner of Limpopo SAPS, Lt Gen Nneke Ledwaba, has condemned in the strongest possible terms the continuous acts of gender-based violence and femicide across the province.
“Innocent lives cannot continue to be lost in the hands of ruthless people and as society we need to stand together and support the police against the killing of women and children in Limpopo. Those who are experiencing domestic-related challenges are advised to approach the readily available facilities in their area rather than resorting to violence,” concluded Ledwaba. 

The suspect is expected to appear before the Praktiseer Magistrate’s Court on November 20.
