According to reports Eastern Cape police have made a breakthrough in a triple murder investigation from three months ago.
A 35-year-old man who allegedly killed a family of three in Tsomo was arrested in Queenstown on Friday.
According to a SAPS report, the victims went missing under mysterious circumstances in the Tsojana Administration Area in Tsomo without a trace at the time. A 71-year-old grandmother and two girls aged 17 and 16 one of whom was 9 months pregnant were last seen in their home in Tsomo on a Sunday. However, on a Monday the following day it was discovered that they had disappeared.
“The arrest of this man must be seen as a serious commitment on our part in rooting out the perpetrators of gender-based violence from within our communities,” said the police’s Thembinkosi Kinana.
The suspect will appear in court on Monday.
