Hit on sons: Mom to remain in custody

2013-08-23 00:00

THE woman accused of ordering a hit on her two sons will remain in custody till her next court appearance in the Port Shepstone Magistrate’s Court on August 28.

The court has ordered that Dorothy Langeni Makhosazana (50) from Gamalakhe township, undergo a mental assessment, and that the report be available at her next court date.

Makhosazana was arrested on Tuesday, after allegedly offering an undercover policeman R25 000 to kill two of her sons. The police started investigating when a relative informed them that the woman had approached him with the request. The police instructed the relative to agree to the killing, but told him that he should inform the woman that he would provide her with another ‘hitman’.

The alleged motive for the murder plot was to collect insurance money on her sons.
