Police Woman & Two Others Murdered in Limpopo in Apparent Domestic Violence

A 32-year-old policewoman from the Mokwakwaila Detective Unit in Limpopo and two others have been shot dead by her husband.

It is understood Detective Constable Mahlatse Precious Machubeni was standing outside her home with a friend when her husband approached and allegedly fired several shots at them. 

They both died at the scene. 

Spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said the policewoman’s husband fled the scene but also shot two other people later.

“Along the way, the suspect reportedly found another 36 year-old male victim with a female friend, sitting inside a BMW vehicle and fatally shot him, apparently on suspicion that he was in love with his wife. The female companion was also shot but was taken to hospital for medical treatment.” 

Mojapelo said the 34-year-old suspect handed himself over to police at the Giyani police station. 

“He was then immediately arrested and placed in Police custody.” 

Mojapelo said the suspect is expected to appear in Bolobedu magistrate court on Tuesday facing charges of three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and car hijacking.
