Crime Justice



A 55-year-old woman was innocently in her house when these 3 criminals murdered her in cold blood

In the small town of Beaufort West, a shocking crime rocked the community when 55-year-old Lydia Njadu was brutally murdered in her own home. But thanks to the tireless efforts of Western Cape Provincial Serious and Violent Crimes detectives, justice may finally be served.

On Sunday night, three armed men arrived at Njadu's residence on Xaba Street in Kwa Mandlenkosi and, in a senseless act of violence, shot and killed the innocent woman

Determined to bring the perpetrators to justice, Western Cape police management assembled a crack team of detectives, led by a senior officer, and descended on Beaufort West to launch an investigation. Their hard work paid off when they arrested two suspects, aged 30 and 35, on Monday and charged them with murder.

But the investigation is far from over. As the police probe continues, more suspects are expected to be arrested and brought to justice for their role in this heinous crime. The two suspects will be appearing in the Beaufort West Magistrates’ court on Wednesday, 25 January 2023.
