The two sisters accused of killing their father, a police warrant officer, and two other co-accused (who are also brothers), briefly appeared in the Vuwani Magistrate’s Court on Friday (23 February).
The four are accused of the brutal murder of W/O Alugumi Nemugumoni at his home in Tshakhuma Village, near Thohoyandou on 19 February. He was stabbed as he entered his house last week.
They were identified as his daughter, Nyambeni Nemugumoni (26), the deceased's other daughter, Phophi (21), alleged assassin Khathutshelo Tshisudi (24) and his brother Calvin Tshisudi (19). The four appeared on charges of murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
''The brothers are known to be notorious criminals and are likely to be connected to other crimes,” said provincial police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo.
After their brief appearance the four’s case was postponed until this coming Friday (2 March), when they are expected to bring a formal bail application.
In the meantime, Mojapelo confirmed that police investigations into the matter are still being finalized.
