A 20-year-old woman will spend Christmas in police custody after reportedly planning a hit on her parents and siblings.
Onthatile Sebati, together with alleged hit men Kagiso Mokone, 23, and Tumelo Mokone, 23, appeared in the Brits Magistrate's Court on Monday, where their case was postponed until December 30 for a bail application, according to North West police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Amanda Funani.
They've been charged with five charges of murder.
Five years ago, Sebati, then 16, allegedly hired hit men to kill her parents and brothers in Mmakau, east of Brits.
Sebati apparently stepped outside on December 6, 2016, to dispose of the water she had been using to wash dishes. She returned to investigate after hearing gunshots inside the house, but assailants allegedly shot her in the thigh and fled the scene in a family car, a Chrysler Voyager.
She then contacted her neighbors, who notified the authorities. Constable Sello Sebati, 42, her mother Mmatshepo Sebati, 41, her sister Tshegofatso, 22, and her small brother Quinton, 6, were discovered in a pool of blood by the police.
Tshegofatso had been pregnant for seven months. The unborn child perished as well.
The Chrysler Voyager was eventually discovered in the bushes near Mmakau's Black Rock Section.
Two individuals were detained in January 2017, however due to a lack of evidence, the Pretoria High Court acquitted them.
Onthatile is said to have gone to the cops and confessed to ordering a hit on her family. On December 17 and 18, the claimed hit men were apprehended in Brits and Soshanguve, respectively.
Constable Sebati was assigned to the Hebron police station at the time of the event.
