Woman murdered in front of the family after reporting rape. This publication has been informed through the Dailysun that, 22-year-old Kutlwano Masilo was gunned down by an unidentified assailant at her house, in full glare of her mother and her younger sibling. In a heart-rendering incident, a South African woman who was the victim of a nasty rape and abduction incident was gunned down after having reported the case.
This follows after reports that the family had gotten death threats after the now-deceased had reported to police that she was raped. Kutlwano is reported to have been abducted and raped 2-years ago and had only gathered the courage to confess of the traumatising ordeal recently. After reporting the case, one of the suspects was arrested following a police investigation. No details were mentioned on how police made the arrest.
However, the family reportedly started receiving death threats which were alleged to have been coming from the suspect’s father following his son’s arrest. The deceased’s mother, Madikgang Masilo (42) who also narrowly escaped death after the attacker fired a barrage of bullets at her, narrated the blood bath.
‘The man shot her three times. As she was lying on the ground, he fired five more shots.
The man also fired shots in my direction. I ran into the shack and he fled,” said the distraught mum.
Kutlwano’s father Thulani Nkosi said he got to the scene not long after the shots were fired and rushed his daughter to a clinic where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Gauteng police spokesman Captain Kay Makhubele said a case of murder was opened. “There are no arrests so far and the motive for the shooting is currently unknown. Police are still investigating.
