THE Family of Nombuiselo Mbewu, 15 who was burnt and killed in Jouberton Location in Klerksdorp says justice must prevails. 

The deceased’s grandmother, Nomekile Mbewu said it was devastating to identified the charred remins of her granddaughter. 

“I sent Nombuiselo to one of the neighbours on Friday, but she never returned home. The case of a missing person was opened on Saturday. 

“The burnt body of a person was seen by passerby on Sunday morning. We went to the scene and positively identified her,” Mbewu said.

She said they identified her through her ear rings and the umbrella that she was still holding in her death. 

A 32 year-old man who is believed to be a local artist was arrested. He will appear in Klerksdorp Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday. 

North West Police Commissioner, Lieutenant General Baile Motswenyane condemned the incident. Motswenyane also applauded the police for acting swiftly in arresting the perpetrator.

“Police will work hard to ensure that justice prevails.”

Many women have been killed recently and that sparked a #MenAreTrash campaign.
