TWO men were arrested in Mamakau village in connection of Constable, Sello Lucky Sebati, 42 and his family members’ murder. North West police spokesperson, Brig Sabata Mokgwabone said a team investigating the alleged multiple murder made a breakthrough on Friday.
“The suspects were arrested at Black Rock Section in Mmakau village following an intensive investigation of an incident in which Constable Sebati, 42, his wife and two daughters were killed at their house in Mmakau village in December.
“According to information, unknown suspects gained entrance into the family’s premise where they allegedly shot and killed Sebati, his wife, 41 as well as their two daughters aged three and 22,” Mokgwabone said.
He added that the latter was expecting a baby who also passed away. Mokgwabone said the third daughter, 15, who was outside when the suspects entered the house survived the ordeal.
“The girl sustained a flash wound due to a shot that the suspects allegedly fired at her. The suspects then fled the scene with a vehicle, Chrysler Grand Voyager which was later found abandoned in the bushes at Black Rock Section, Mmakau.
“At the time of the incident, Constable Sebati was working at Hebron Police Station. The suspects, aged 29 and 38 are expected to appear in the Brits Magistrate’s Court facing four counts of murder, house robbery, attempted murder and theft of motor vehicle,” he said.
North West Provincial Commissioner, Lieutenant General Baile Motswenyane commended the investigation team for working tirelessly to arrest the ruthless perpetrators. She said further that the police will continue to work hard to ensure that a lengthy jail term is secured.
