Two suspects arrested for Beaufort West woman’s murder

Western Cape Provincial Serious and Violent Crimes detectives made a major breakthrough in the investigation into the gruesome killing of 55-year-old Lydia Njadu from Beaufort West with the arrest of two suspects.

The investigation took the team to Kwa Mandlenkosi in Beaufort West on Monday, where they arrested the suspects, aged 30 and 35, on murder charges. They remain in police custody.

According to Sergeant Christopher Spies, the victim was at her place of residence on Sunday when three armed men arrived. After a short conversation, the trio then randomly shot at the woman fatally wounding her.

However, despite the two arrests, the investigation remains in its early stages and more suspects are expected to be arrested.
