But as I said, I am unable at this point to determine terms of the sequence of events because the investigation is still ongoing.”

“We are investigating the circumstances around the incident and the mother was immediately arrested. She will be charged with murder. We are going to bring her to Ngcobo Magistrate’s once charged,” Kinana added.
