Johannesburg - A 93-year-old woman has been killed at her home in Siyabuswa near Marble Hall in Mpumalanga, police said on Monday.

Her granddaughter found her lying in bed, in a pool of blood at about 09:00 on Saturday, Constable Busi Mtshweni said.

"The intruders had apparently gained entry into the house after cutting a steel burglar door."

Mtshweni said the motive for the crime was not immediately clear as nothing had been stolen from the house.

The woman was staying with her two granddaughters. She was sleeping at the time of the attack.

A case of murder was being investigated.

    To live for 93 years and then to have your life snuffed out by people who are less than human. If this does not make all decent people hope that there is an 'afterlife court of justice' then I don't know.

    F*ck man. RSA is a heaven for sick criminal bastards. I am so hurt. How the f*ck do you kill a 93 year old???

      The same way you kill anyone else. It just takes less effort. I read your comments on the farmer article, and wonder which of the crimes comitted are worse. Only when good people in this country can look past race and demand justice for all, things will start changing. For now were stuck in a murderous orgy, with no end in sight.

    killing someone has become a "no big deal" in SA.... Why would a mentally sound human kill 93yr old woman? wtf.. we really need help!

    We need to contract our Justice Dept out to the Chinese. Admit that our Human Rights would take a knock, but our jails would be empty.
