TZANEEN: Uncle allegedly murders nephew (14) over R1 000

A 35 year old man was arrested last night in Giyani for the murder of his 14 year old nephew.

This incident took place at Mphagani village outside Giyani where it is alleged that a 14 -year old boy,  Akani Shiviti staying in Tikyline village in the Maake policing area outside Tzaneen, was physically assaulted by his uncle with an electric cable and later found dead on his bed.

‘He was being accused of breaking  into his uncle’s house and stealing R1 000,’ the police said in a statement.

The deceased was visiting his uncle, when the incident took place.

The suspect will appear before the Giyani Magistrate Court tomorrow on October 5, on a count of murder.

The Provincial Commissioner LT. General Nneke Ledwaba, condemns the killing of a minor because child discipline cannot be done through the excessive use of force, this is totally uncalled for.+
