THE Mpumalanga MEC for Community Safety, Security and Liaison, Gabisile Shabalala has applauded  the breakthrough made by the police in the province following the arrest of a suspect linked  to several murders in the Masoyi area recently. He apparently confessed to the killings and burying them in his yard. The female victims were most likely raped as well.

With National Womens’ Day just around the corner, Shabalala has called on the police to ensure the man is successfully prosecuted “so that he pays for the cruelty he meted out to the victims.” She added that such heartlessness should be punished accordingly  in order to eradicate women and child abuse. The suspect handed himself over the police.
