A 25-year-old man has admitted to police that he killed his mother after he was caught with her head in a carry-on bag.
Police went to investigate after receiving a tip about the man who was allegedly walking around with his mother’s head in his bag, said the North West police spokesperson Sabata Mokgwabone on Monday.
According to him, the police went to the Montshiwastad settlement near Mahikeng on Saturday night, where they found the bag with the human head at the man. “The man apparently admitted that he killed his mother last Monday (September 7) in Hercules, Pretoria. The motive is still unknown. “
The man will soon appear in the Molopo, Mmabatho Magistrate’s Court on a charge of possession of a human body part. Mokgwabone says his case will then be transferred to Pretoria where he will appear on a charge of murder.
