Dad, daughters in court on murder charge

2012-08-22 00:00

A FATHER and his two daughters appeared in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s Court on Monday for allegedly murdering their brother. The case was postponed until August 27.

The suspects, Raymond Mohlakoane (62), and his two daughters, Pinkie (37) and Sizakele (36), were arrested after police received a complaint of domestic violence in Imbali Unit BB4 on Sunday morning.

Police spokesperson Captain Thulani Zwane said on their arrival, police found Karabo Mohlakoana (26), with burn wounds on his body.

“Initial investigation revealed that there was a domestic related argument in the family that resulted in the killing,” Zwane said.

It is alleged that the victim attempted to attack his father with an axe. The victim’s sisters then came and tried to stop the fight.

“As the victim became more aggressive, he accidentally fell and was somehow burnt with boiling water during the commotion.”

Zwane said it is further alleged that the victim was assaulted by the father and his two daughters with a golf club, and he later died from his injuries.

Plessislaer police have opened a murder docket for further investigation.
