Tumelo waga Dibakwane
Another woman had allegedly been killed by her boyfriend. He apparently hid her body under the bed in Nyongane near Hazyview.
Miriam Mashego’s (35) body was found by her children and neighbours.
“When they returned from school they did not find her phoning her, the phone was answered but the person did not talk. The children noticed that their mother’s room was locked. They eventually slept without seeing her,” said Elson Nkosi, her brother. The following day, the older daughter called family members to inquire about her whereabouts but to no avail. Other relatives and community members were called to assist.
“One of the neighbours peeped through the roof to check inside the locked bedroom and saw keys on the floor. He used a wire to pull them out and opened the door. Her lifeless body was found under the bed, facing down,” said Nkosi. It is suspected that a hammer had been used to kill her. Her head showed severe trauma and her skull was fractured. Her cell phone is missing and the murder weapon not found.
