Three suspects were arrested yesterday for the alleged murder of a young couple.

 

Limpopo police stated: Three suspects were arrested yesterday for the alleged murder of a young couple.

This follows the discovery of the bodies of 18 year old Lucia Malapane and 19 year old Nius Malatji by a neighbour on Sunday.

Provincial SAPS spokesperson Motlafela Mojapelo said the 47-year-old businessman had gone to see why Malatji had not been to work, when he made the gruesome discovery with their toddler beside the bodies.

The murders sparked widespread violent protests by community members in the area, after they accused the businessman of being responsible for the murders of the couple.

The angry mob from the village went on a rampage, torched the businessman’s shop and a motor vehicle. They proceeded to his house, burnt it and in the process killed some livestock, including chickens, goats and pigs. The suspects then fled the scene

 Three suspects were arrested later on the same day. The suspects were found in possession of some items belonging to the deceased.

The suspects, aged between 34 and 47, appeared before Bolobedu Magistrate’s Court yesterday, facing charges of house breaking with intent to commit two counts of murder, rape and robbery.

Mojapelo said the motive for the murders would be determined by police investigations.
