In our Monday article, we reported that a 13-year-old girl became an eyewitness of her grandmother’s murder. An unknown man assaulted the 63-year-old woman with a hammer in Tongaat, north of Durban.
Today, the updated information left the Tongaat residents terrified as the police arrested the girl accusing her of having murdered her grandmother and trying to conceal the crime.
According to police spokesperson Col Thembeka Mbele, the teen was arrested on Tuesday and is now held in a detention centre.
