Mahikeng - A 32-year-old woman was found hacked to death in her Mmakau home, near Brits, in the North West, police said on Thursday.

Warrant Officer Morake Lehbye said the Zimbabwean woman was struck with an axe on the head and neck, allegedly by her Mozambican boyfriend, on Wednesday evening.

"The couple's two daughters, aged 8 and 8 months, were also allegedly assaulted with heavy objects on their heads," said Lehbye.

The girls were hospitalised in a critical condition.

Police were searching for the attacker.

      In most other places this sort of crime is headline news, the stuff of horror films, happening very rarely. This sort of thing does seem to happen here in the Wild Wild South a lot more frequently. Then again where else do governments tolerate striking workers wielding axes and machetes?

      jacque.raymer That is non sense, clearly u do not watch news..You saw the boy who shot everyone at the BATMAN movie?? how about the boy from Norway who shot everybody n got 22Years?? How about the dude from Miami who was eating a face of a Homeless man in Miami?? how about the beheading of UK\US Journalist in the Middle east or Stoning of women in the middle east? or the never ending fighting over there??? Like Khumbulani said "The world has gne to vultures" stop making as if the rest of the world is better , they just as worse

      @junebugg.kinte - jaque is still right - those things you mentioned MADE THE HEADLINES! But also compared with the world - we have a hell of a high mortality rate and crime statistics that somehow just makes us stand out!

      junebugg.kinte - 2012-09-28 11:36

      @aniken.vader.31 We are not different from the world, do you know how many people die in the Middle-east everyday?? Go look at the Crime Violence in Chicago alone..Look at the Mexican drug war..etc etc.. Morality rate compared to other countries, I read both SA Headlines and CNN\BBC\Aljazeera believe me..what is happening in South Africa happens everywhere...There is no difference.

    Some of our neighbouring brothers are just spoiling the efforts of those who came here seeking greener pastures and putting this country in a world map for positive contribution. Its reallity that some of the crimes committed in this country involve Mozambicans and Zimbambweans.

  • PERCYMN - 2012-09-27 23:06

    Ths foreigners they're domonating the criminal stats in SA bt if we talk ,we're lebelled as xenophibic, ANC has failed us big time.

      joe.ndlovu.16 - 2012-09-28 07:31

      Do u mean to say only foreigners are the ones who are commiting crime here in SA.your mindset is not gud at all

      loading123 - 2012-09-28 07:50

      Treat the foreigners well. Once SA has sunk, you can seek refuge in their country. But they WILL remember how you treated them.

      aniken.vader.31 - 2012-09-28 10:38

      i disagree - if the xenophobic attacks happened BY south africans, it just shows the high rate of violence WITHIN the south african society itself! The foreigners are just a scapegoat for weak minds... Sure I am not a denialist about the levels of crimes within the foreigners, but to single them out is totally incorrect!

      Randomhero6661 - 2012-09-28 11:09

      Mozambique is not SA... unless we just winding down the road to pick up old stompies...

  • narike.lintvelt.9 - 2012-09-27 23:20

    death penalty. how many times must one say it? call a referendum - will get an easy 2/3 majority.

      allhaleto.theale - 2012-09-28 09:41

      Referendum now. Leonardb1, I disagree, I reckon that's where the greatest support for the death penalty will come from.

    preserve my countrymans oh Lord from territorial demons that rages in this country .....

    Death Penalty.

      J.Stephen.Whiteley - 2012-09-28 07:59

      I would be a hangman if I could be assured the authorities were capable of operating it humanely and efficiently. But it won't happen.

      nicholas.graan - 2012-09-28 09:30

      You believe someone who hacks his girlfriend to death with an axe and then beats up his children with a "heavy object" should be treated humanely?

  • rofhiwa.ronald.1 - 2012-09-28 04:52

    U stupid foreighners First u killed our international renown boxers CORIE sanders now u r killing each other in our country. the problém is when u start waking up with bread n peanutbutter on u brakefast u forgot that u came from ur countries because off starvation n malnutritions. m patriotic to my country n i wont allow sh**t like this carry on while m watching :::ONE:::

  • cindy.wrathex.ruthven - 2012-09-28 05:28

    Hacking, chopping, burning, raping, it all indicates a psychopathic cluster in our population - there are too many criminals who hurt and maim in a savage inhumane way, indicating a lack of empathy, and empathy is what makes a human a civilised being. I wish there was a way deal with these animals, to root them out.

      carolyn.dewrance - 2012-09-28 09:40

      Cindy they are not animals, animals dont do this, they are parasites.

      allhaleto.theale - 2012-09-28 09:44

      There is. The death penalty.

      merven.halo - 2012-09-28 08:33

      Lol, it is not like the guys are walking around with a 'monster' sign on their foreheads!

  • rude.awakning - 2012-09-28 06:00

    my condolences to the CHILDREN of the couple who have lost BOTH parents! The racist comments on this issue is upsetting to say the least! Recently we had in the news an indian male who killed his wife and dissapeared for a decade before being caught! We had a white boy who killed a family, a white sunday rapist etc is not my intention to degrade ANY race but to highlight the fact that crime and inhumane behaviour crosses over all barriers and is not confined to a particular race, nationality or religious groups!

  • michele.lavagna - 2012-09-28 07:16

    What a sick freak! Shoot him, it's the only way.

      Lol you are such a hypocrite

  • douglas.reid.921 - 2012-09-28 07:52

    Reason we can't have the death penalty is cause we would be hanging 50 komrads a day every day. Don't have enough rope and hangman would probably go on strike anyway. Rather put them in jail, costs about R 40000 a year x 25 = R1 million.

  • derek.smith.12177276 - 2012-09-28 07:58

    I think its time that the Zims,Nigerians,Somalis and the Mozambis go home...or maybe get some forceful help to get home...we dont need you here...this country cant even take care of its own people , these foreigners have at least a 50% contribution to crime in this country , if they go 2 000 000 jobs will be vacant for the locals.

  • twist.cas - 2012-09-28 08:02

    Foreigners again, f**ck them, he knows very well that he won’t get arrested because is here illegally and it’s going to be difficult to trace him. South Africans, am not xenophobic but this pigs are here to destroy our country. We need to start doing something now ….

      mzi.magwaza - 2012-09-28 09:49

  • winifred.watson.9 - 2012-09-28 08:49

    There is'nt a day that goes by without some sort of brutual murder or rape or both. What has gone wrong in our society....blood thirsty maniacs. Throw them down an unused mine shaft and leave them there to eek out a living down there by eating each other to stay alive. They deserve nothing better.

      mike.bundy.73 - 2012-09-28 09:00

      You people are so funny, complaining about others with murder in their hearts and then suggesting that we fix it with more murder. Ha ha ha ha ha.

      rude.awakning - 2012-09-30 09:38

      mike, you may or may not have been directly affected by violent crime. Sentiments expressed here are understood by those that knows how others feel. I doubt that if a close family member or friend of yours has been brutally murdered, that you would go 'hs ha ha ha ha ' and turn the other cheek.

  • talana.malherbe - 2012-09-28 09:13

    And we have to give this murderous bastard a fair trial with our tax payers money????? So sad for the children...

  • nana.akua.12914 - 2012-09-28 10:59

    Crime in SA has become a norm. what surprises me, during 2010 wrldcup security and policing was strengthened. It just tells me gvmnt ds not care for his own. Oh that all South Africans in all provinces can much to express unhappiness / remove freedom day from our calender. Is freedom doing crime wthout facing consequences? we keep xpressin our sadness in passsing of one because of crime but its not sincere because we take no action at all.

  • rude.awakning - 2012-09-28 19:20

    My business partner and I plus 3 close friends left SA for safer pastures after highjacking, armed robberies and house robbery resulting in the death of a family member. 1 to NZ, 1 to US and 3 to UK . Within the first year three of them experienced crime in their new found homes. The 4th one lost to a car accident! my contract in the US expired last year and i am back for 3 months now, before the end of this year they will all be back. Crimes is all over! I am glad to be back! Better the devil you know!!!!!!
