Ntombela says it is sickening that the suspected had allegedly killed his own mother, said to be a former Eastern Cape SAPS administrative clerk. She says women in the country continue to be murdered with impunity by what she termed “cowardly criminals”.
Notmbela urged the South African Police Service (SAPS) to quickly complete their investigations and also implored the court to impose a harsh sentence.
The suspect is set to appear at the Welkom magistrate’s court on Tuesday, April 6 to face a charge of murder.
The suspect was nabbed by the police yesterday. The deceased was reported missing by her brother on Wednesday, March 31.
