BONTLE’S SUSPECTED KILLERS VISITED HER MOM EVERY DAY TO ”SYMPATHIZE”
The mother of murdered six-year-old Bontle Mashiyane said her daughter’s alleged killers sympathised with her daily.
Permission Seipane said Ntombikayise Mokoena would come to her in the morning, after working the night shift, and ask her if there was any progress on the whereabouts of her daughter.
“It’s shocking that Mokoena came to our house every day to ask about the progress of our search. She kept asking me how I was coping as I was heavily pregnant. That woman even offered to buy my new baby a present,” said Permission, as she nursed her premature baby.
She said she went into early labour because of the stress she was going through.
“I keep crying for my daughter while I have to care for my newborn, it’s not easy,” she said.
“I felt helpless and I was in pain as I was pregnant,” she said.
“Every day I have to force myself to face the reality that I will never see my daughter again.”
She said when they bump into Thapelo “Surprise” Ngomane, who is also a suspect, he is clearly sorry.
Mganduzweni community leader and ANC youth leader Godfrey Shiba said the people are angry and everything the community has done thus far is an expression of the way they feel.
“We are living in fear. We worry about whose child will be next. The killers are community members and we just want justice to prevail,” he said.
Collen Hlongwane, 36, Thapelo Ngomane, 25, and Ntombikayise Mokoena, 40, appeared in court on Monday charged with murder.
They will return to court on 24 June.
