2012-02-27 13:38

Mbombela - Two men accused of torturing and beating a 78-year-old woman to death appeared in the Belfast Magistrate's Court on Monday, Mpumalanga police said.

The matter was postponed to March 2 for them to obtain legal representation, Lieutenant Colonel Leonard Hlathi said.

Vusi Elias Letsoala, 34, and Raymond Bafikile Mahlangu were arrested last week when they were found in possession of the woman's digital camera and money.

Johanna Moore's body was found in her home by her gardener. She had injuries on her face and burn wounds on both arms. An electric iron was apparently used to assault her as it was found next to the body.

Moore was a South African of Norwegian descent and had lived in Dullstroom for 22 years, running a flower nursery.

    It is sad that this had to happen to a 78 year old lady who probably never harmed another person during her entire lifetime. I hope these monsters never see the light of day ever again.

    Why are they still alive?

      Elle-Black - 2012-02-27 14:19

      My sentiment exactly,they have no chance of ever being rehabilitated and there could be absolutely no reason for them to do what they did so why should we pay tax to keep them alive in jail?

      kill them in the cells.

    Bring back the death penalty. Only solution!

  • Kevin - 2012-02-27 15:13

    Hand the thugs over so that real justice can be meted out.

    These warriors should be handed to the public. Only way too deal WITH SAVAGES.

    Slightly different headline than the "Racially Motivated" one that appeared in the headlines a little later regarding the three schoolboys. This may very well create a impression that double standards exist.
