A young girl from Soshanguve, Block V, accused of allegedly stabbing her mother to death then afterwards running outside naked and screaming ‘”kill me because I killed my mother” was arrested on Saturday morning. Her community say she previously didn’t appear to have a mental condition. Community members say they have never seen any more odd behavior.
The young girl is described as a very good girl who no one would have thought she can do something as horrifying as that. Neighbors wonder what kind of horror could have happened inside that house leading to what has just happened in their community.
“Seeing her run naked and shouting out ‘kill me because I killed my mother’ is a sign that the worst has happened in that house. We still do not believe what has just happened, indeed this is a lifetime trauma.” “As the community of Soshanguve, Block V, we are shocked. We knew the suspect as a good girl, we truly do not know what really got into her.” Said a confidential source.
Captain Maluleke, Communication officer at Rietgat Police station say the young girl is undergoing mental evaluation. “It’s a very sensitive case and whether she was suffering from a mental illness at the time it occurred or she is suffering from intense grief because of her actions, it is all still being investigated,” the police said.
The young Soshanguve girl is charged with a murder. Her brother couldn’t say much besides ‘No comment to the whole matter’. The accused lived with her mother whom she allegedly stabbed to death and her older brother.
This is a developing story.
