Police condemn the prevelance of violent attacks at liquor outlets

The South African Police Service in Limpopo condemn the violent attacks that are still prevalent at various liquor outlets in some parts of the Province in the strongest possible terms.

This condemnation follows the recent violent attacks where two people lost their lives in separate incidents.

The police in Thohoyandou have arrested a 19-year-old woman after she allegedly stabbed to death her 25-year-old boyfriend during a drinking spree at Mbilwi village outside Thohoyandou this weekend.

The couple was with other patrons at one of the local liquor outlets when an argument erupted between them. The suspect took out a sharp object and stabbed her partner.

The police and the medical emergency services were summoned to the scene and swiftly responded. The man was taken to the local hospital where he was certified dead on arrival.

The police immediately launched a manhunt until the suspect was arrested when she handed herself over to the police late yesterday.

Meanwhile in the Lephalale Policing area, the Police have arrested a 31-year-old woman for allegedly killing his 36-year-old former partner at Marapong location Extension 4 outside Lephalale this weekend.

It is alleged that the deceased asked the suspect to accompany him to his home but the suspect declined. The deceased later went to the suspect’s house and allegedly found her with another man and an argument ensued during which the suspect stabbed the man to death with a sharp object.

Both suspects will appear before the Thohoyandou and Lephalale Magistrate’s Courts respectively on Monday 2018-11-12 on charges of murder.

Members of the community must refrain from resorting to violence in cases of any sort of dispute including domestic related disputes that lead to the unnecessary loss of lives.

The Police investigations are still continuing.
