IN SHOCK: Look at the amount Bontle's killers received for her little womb

This weekend, two murders shocked the entire nation. The body of six-year-old Bontle Mashiyane was discovered abandoned in the bushes near her home in one of them. Her physique was disfigured. According to the Premier of Mpumalanga, Bontle's body was discovered with various missing body parts. The child's head was empty, lacking eyes, ears, and a tongue. The six-year-old was apparently raped and murdered by a forty-year-old guy. Premier Refilwe Mtshweni-Tsipane also confirmed the arrest of three individuals in connection with the homicide.

Prior to their arrest, the murderers of Bontle Mashiyane confessed that they killed her for her body parts. Apparently, they have already murdered and sold the body parts of three children. The disturbing aspect is the amount of money obtained by the criminals. The confession stated that each suspect was compensated R10,000 for the fetus. Therefore, the worth of human life has diminished to the point where people would kill an innocent child for R30,000. What has caused our people to become so heartless? Is it indigence?

During his visit to the bereaved family, the Prime Minister expressed sincere regret for the state of the community. She reported that a neighbor and her boyfriend had murdered Bontle. The culprits are the victim's family's next-door neighbors, and the victim used to play with their 10-year-old. Premier Mtsweni-Tsipane stated, "I stand here defeated today knowing that the mastermind behind the death of this child is a woman, a person who is expected to care for and nourish children was the one who plotted this terrible murder."

Refilwe Mtshweni-Tsipane is pictured with the police.

Every day, our strength is diminished. We continue to post "Enough is Enough," yet the legal system continues to fail us even more. This is a significant amount, but we are on our own.
