Missing Siyabuswa girl (6) found murdered

Police are looking for information that could lead to the arrest of suspects who kidnapped and killed a six year old girl from Siyabuswa who went missing on 21 July 2018.

The girl’s lifeless body was found in a shallow stream a few metres away from her relatives’ house where she was last seen. The person who found her body raised the alarm and police were summoned to the scene.

Information at police disposal revealed that she was attending a traditional ceremony with her grandmother in Siyabuswa A. It is reported that she was in a room playing with other children whilst the adults were enjoying the ceremony outside, when she suddenly went out of the room and never returned.

It appears that the victim was strangled and possibly raped, however a post mortem will be conducted to shed more light on the matter.

The Provincial Commissioner of the police in Mpumalanga, Lieutenant General Mondli Zuma condemned the senseless kidnapping and killing of people, especially young children.

Anyone with information that could lead to the arrest of the heartless suspect(s) is urged to contact Warrant Officer Modise Matsimela at 082 752 2919 or call the SAPS Crime Stop number 08600 10111.
