Following the gruesome slaughter of a Limpopo family on Christmas Day, an eerily similar case has been reported on Thursday. A total of five family members, aged between 18 to 82, were murdered by gun-wielding thugs yesterday.

SAPS has kept four people in custody over this heinous incident, and they’re still trying to establish what the motive is. The male suspects are no older than 32, and they are set to face the wrath of the courts on Friday.

Not even a week has passed since a family in the Jimmy Jones District of Vhembe were also butchered. Seven relatives, murdered by one suspect, had their lives cut short in grim fashion. The province is now reeling after Wednesday’s discovery.

The family in Tsolo, Limpopo were all sleeping when gunmen stormed the property. With multiple armed thugs entering into different rooms, fatal shots were administered at a rapid pace. The alleged murderers then escaped into the night.

However, some extremely swift police work from Limpopo’s top detectives ensured that arrests could be made within 24 hours of the crime being reported. SAPS issued a statement on the matter earlier today, confirming that the suspects are thought to be Tsolo locals.
