“I found them beaten to a pulp”. This is how a neighbour described the condition of two elderly sisters to the media after he discovered them after they have been seriously assaulted by two black male home invaders, one of them their gardener. The attack took place in their home in Oak Glen, Bellville on Saturday 10 October 2020.

The one sister who is 83 had to be operated on after the attackers hit her jaw off. The other sister who is 76 was injured much more seriously. She is currently in critical condition in the ICU of a local hospital. Her condition has to first improve before she is also operated on. She has a facial fracture, her ribs are cracked and it is suspected that she has a brain injury.

Two suspects have been arrested after the incident and appeared in court last Monday on charges of house robbery and attempted murder. One accused, Manomo Tshabalala (37) is the gardener of the sisters and the other one is known as Sicelo Dladla (30).

The two attackers gained entry to the house, assaulted the two elderly women and left with cellphones and a laptop. A woman saw the suspects jump over the gate of the yard and asked painters who were in the area to chase them. Neighbours also responded and a security company. The suspects were eventually caught and handed over to Police. The stolen items were found back.

A neighbour discovered the sisters in the house and called an ambulance.

#BlackWar. Again the gardener. Somebody will have to start telling our elderly people how many white people (all Afrikaans speaking) have been attacked or murdered by their own black workers recently because we know some of our people don’t like to read the news. Even if we post it free to read on FB.
