“He entered through the window where she was sleeping,” said Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela.
“The 13-year-old was stabbed and killed by her 20-year-old brother.”
The neighbours heard the girl screaming around 8pm and alerted the police.

Fatyela said the man was a known drug user, but the police were still investigating the motive for the killing.
