Baby hacked to death in Klerksdorp

2013-01-27 21:39

Johannesburg - A 2-year-old boy was hacked to death, allegedly by his stepfather, in Jouberton, near Klerksdorp, North West police said on Sunday.

Warrant Officer Sam Tselanyane said the body of the child was found in a plastic bucket inside the toilet on Saturday.

"The tiny body sustained serious head injuries and a fractured skull."

He said the boy's mother and her 25-year-old boyfriend had a fight at a tavern on Friday night. They left the tavern and the woman went her neighbour's house.

The man attacked her again and she fled to her grandmother's place.

"On Saturday when asked the whereabouts of the child, he said he was in a bucket inside the toilet." Tselanyane said the child was certified dead on the scene.

"The suspect was arrested and will be charged with murder. He is expected to appear before the Klerksdorp Magistrate's Court on Monday."

    I hope one day to be in the position to make a person like this repent the good old fashion'd way. This man is not worthy of being called a human being. You can not possibily tell me that a monster like this has a soul. Wish there was a way to rid society of this filth. NAme the man News24.

      @Charnelle,had a WHITE committed this crime, it would have been plastered all over the news that a WHITE male, blah-blah-blah, and the media would also not hesitate to name him asap. But it is a known fact that the media have strict instructions to NOT mention the race of a perpetrator if he/she is non-white...

      Amatambo, so true that. And why put a pic of a white baby on there?

    it's all their sangoma voodoo witchcraft, because all that is of Satan and demons possess people enabling them to do this sort of thing without any remorse. The only truth is Jesus, they should follow Jesus not Satan, because no one ordinarily human does this. This sort of thing is demonic!

    The sad thing about this is now the woman has no responsibilities and will now be free to get wasted in shabeens and sleep with men and will get pregnant again... Vicious cycle..

  • Tuyez - 2013-01-28 06:04

    Where is the biological father? She could wait a bit after she was seperated with the babies father. Look what happened now.

  • bryan.torien - 2013-01-28 06:30

  • bman.johnson - 2013-01-28 06:53

    Bring in the Death penalty for people like this, plain and simple. Why should taxpayers pay to keep this subhuman alive in prison?

  • cahrine.pretorius - 2013-01-28 08:57

    Hang him on the nearest tree, what kind of so-called human does that to an innocent little baby, and what kind of mother leaves her child with some one who had just tried to kill her...for that matter she is just as guilty as the barbaric murderer

  • lelanie.prinsloo - 2013-01-28 09:18

    Why did she leave her child with someone that was fighting with her!!! What mother does that! SICK country we live in!!!! Rest in peace little one!

  • ulandi.potgieter - 2013-01-28 09:30

    He needs to be given a life sentence I know it wont bring her baby back.

  • jacqui.daanevanrensburg - 2013-01-28 09:46

    Bloody savage.

  • johann.dupreez.10 - 2013-01-28 10:11

    Bring back death penalty! Public execution works the best!

  • DexterM - 2013-01-28 11:17

    It's funny how many people stand against this hacking of the 2-year old baby. Pretty sure most of you also stand for "pro choice" for abortion where a baby(fetus) also gets hacked to death. I don't see anyone of you speaking out against abortion so, what's the difference?

      ulandi.potgieter - 2013-01-28 12:40

      @ DexterM - I think everyone that has put a comment on this story is against abortions so please don't jump to conclusions before asking or even say anything nice. This poor child was innocent and this monster harm the 2yr old. And people who have abortions should be murdered at the same time as they are killing a human being because no child asked to be born.
