SOUTH AFRICA: A Zimbabwean woman (35) was shot seven times at her house in Cosmos City in a horrific murder which was witnessed by her son (10).

The motive behind the shooting including the suspect behind it is not known.

South African police spokesperson for Honeydew, Captain Balan Muthan confirmed the murder, saying the woman, identified as Ms Excite Mudau, from Beitbridge, was declared dead at the scene.

“The woman from Zimbabwe was shot in the lower part of the body and she died on the spot. She was sleeping with her son when the suspect stormed into her house and shot her and the boy then rushed outside and notified neighbours who then alerted police,” he said.

“Our detectives are investigating the murder and no arrests have been made so far.”

Sources suspect that the killer is the woman’s boyfriend whom she had a quarrel with earlier on.
