The Police in Westenburg seek information that can assist in locating a man who allegedly killed a 44-year-old after her daughter ordered the hit.

The girl allegedly met the suspect in her residential area on the outskirts of Polokwane. They had a conversation in which she reportedly told him that her mother was denying her freedom and that she wanted to get rid of her.

The two then went to the house to wait for the girl’s mother. The mother arrived home and seemingly was attacked with a frying pan and collapsed. It is reported that the suspect further strangled her. They thereafter dragged her to the bedroom and left her. 

The girl allegedly slept in her mother’s motor vehicle that night and only reported the matter to the Police the following day on 16 March and alleged that she found her mother in a pool of blood.

The case of murder was opened and during preliminary investigations, it came to light that the young girl conspired with the suspect to kill her mother because “she wanted her own freedom.”


The 16-year-old girl was then arrested and charged with murder, and a manhunt for her accomplice was launched. 

The 16-year-old girl appeared in Polokwane magistrate court yesterday on Friday 17 March 2023  on a charge of murder. The case was remanded to 4 April 2023 for further Police investigations.
