A man believed to have killed his 5 children with an axe in the Eastern Cape has been arrested by the police.
The 42-year-old woman and her children, aged six months to 10 years, were attacked with an axe, which according to the authorities, is the same weapon found at the crime scene.
“The police then set up a network to find the deceased mother’s husband, who investigators believe could help with the investigation.” “Within 24 hours of the horrific crime, the police arrested her husband, an imb imbabwe citizen,” said Lirandzo Themba, a police spokesman.
The 34-year-old man was hiding at the time of his arrest, as if he was going to flee the nation.
Minister of Police General Becky Cele stated.
It is the duty of the police to be sure that the perpetrators of such heinous acts will be arrested and will follow the legal guidelines of this nation. However, such arrests take place only after the fact, in many cases after the destruction of lives, is inappropriate.
So I name men, I urge all of you to stop abusing և violence against girls և young men … it’s so easy.
