In a startling turn of events, a 53-year-old police captain and his 42-year-old police girlfriend find themselves at the center of a chilling crime, having been arrested in connection with the double murder of Gladys, a 40-year-old mother, and her unidentified 70-year-old grandmother.
The victims were tragically shot dead in Makgophong, Zebediela, on May 4, 2021, casting a shadow over the peaceful community.
The victims’ ties to popular actress Amanda Manku, famously known as Lizzy on Skeem Saam, have added a layer of complexity to this already shocking incident. The details surrounding the motive for the heinous act remain unclear, leaving the community and fans alike in a state of bewilderment.
The arrest of one suspect unfolded dramatically at the Mozambican Port of entry, where they were apprehended while attempting to cross the border. This led to a swift and coordinated effort by law enforcement, culminating in the impending appearance of both suspects before the Lebowakgomo Magistrate’s Court on the morning of January 10, 2024.
The charges brought against the accused duo are weighty and include two counts of murder, conspiracy to commit murder, robbery with aggravating circumstances, attempted murder, and defeating the ends of justice. The gravity of these charges underscores the severity of the alleged crimes committed, leaving the community grappling with shock and sorrow.
