Woman forced to kill son - claim

2012-04-29 19:33

Johannesburg - A Limpopo woman will appear in the Bolobedu Magistrate's Court on Monday after her 4-year-old son was strangled, police said on Sunday.

Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said the 21-year-old woman was arrested on Thursday, after an autopsy revealed the boy was strangled.

She previously claimed to police she was a babysitter looking after the boy when he died on April 19.

Mulaudzi said she later admitted that her ex-boyfriend forced her at gunpoint to kill her son. She claimed the boy reminded him of another of her ex-boyfriends that he had murdered.

The man was wanted by police in a separate case of murder committed in December last year.

"[He] is on the run and efforts to capture him are underway," Mulaudzi said.

    What an excuse of a mother! Mother instinct is supposed to be almost as strong as survival instinct and the need to protect one's offspring is a universal part of being any living creature! A parent should be willing to give their lives in order to save their children..Shame on her! May God have mercy on her soul cause I don't know of any mothers who will!

    I know of no "MOTHER" that could ever be "forced" to kill her child... they would lay their lives down for their kids - but never kill... or have I got rose-tinted glasses on again and people here would like me to believe that the society that we live in can make us go against our base instincts.... yeah right!

      I absolutely agree. It will be physically impĆ³ssible to kill one's own child, even at gunpoint. I will gladly be shot instead..

    Epitome of a bad mother, you should've kill yourself and stop breeding. the soul of this child will hunt you for ever,

    I have to let you in on a secret......'instead of evolving, us Africans are regressing, we're mutating backwards. The breeding of people is so indiscrimate....ie total lack of having an attraction for one another, falling in love, marrying and then breeding. No, sex is seen as a transaction, a right, instant gratification and quite sadly in some cultures to get gifts and stature. This is unnatural and the unwanted children that have resulted from these liasons are the very same reason these 'mis-breds' exist. Man has defied nature and will pay the price.

      Marina - 2012-04-30 07:56

      I agree with most of your points, but the killing of one's children happens across the board. We've just had a case of a white woman's boyfriend who killed a 2 month baby and she just stood by and let it happen. It's sick, sick, sick!

  • Esther - 2012-04-29 21:50

    Well,its simple both parents should serve life imprisonment,I doubt that the gun was legal...

    Its unbelivable 2 c wt ppl r cable of doing ,killing n innocent child wth own bare hands,wt trauma.

  • Marina - 2012-04-30 07:50

    Not even an animal harms it's young. I have a theory the these people that kill their children or allow their partners to kill them are the result of an evolutionary malfunction. Who knows what evil genepool they're spawned from?

  • Evelyn - 2012-04-30 08:08

    How possible was that? The boy reminded him of her ex-boyfriend that he had murdered. So the boy deserve to die, just like that?..*speechless*

  • Climate - 2012-04-30 09:12

    I think both of them they deserve to be in prison,because an innocent baby boy is killed on behalf of their disgusting mess.they must get punished thats all the deserve those killer*angry*

  • Nomcebo - 2012-04-30 11:53

    really!!!! This woman deserves to be in jail, how can anybody tell you to kill your own child and you do it. animals protect their young at all cost, how can a mother do that.
