Limpopo mom jailed after allegedly killing her son who threatened sibling

A 60-year-old woman has been arrested by the SAPS in Limpopo for allegedly killing her 18-year-old son.

The deceased teenager, identified by the SAPS as “Spanky Sefuka”, reportedly arrived home at Ga Masemola Kgoogo Section on Sunday at about 5am after attending a wedding.

He then allegedly started insulting his 25-year-old sister, threatening her with a knife. His mother reportedly tried to intervene but was allegedly threatened by the victim named Spanky,” said Limpopo SAPS spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo.

The mother then allegedly used the wood and a stick to strike the victim until he succumbed to the assault at the scene.

The 60-year-old woman thereafter went to a nearby police station to report the incident, and she was subsequently arrested.
