Following the burial of his nephew in her backyard. We were always smelling a tremendous scent and we assumed maybe it was a dead dog or any animal, her neighbors said. Every day, we don't find anything when we seek for what smells so strong. They said yes.
We received a call from Neighborhoods alerting us that there is something smells near/around their neighborhood and that it could be a woman, according to a police spokesperson. K9 and other officers arrived to search the area. They discovered a boy dead in Mrs Andile Aalivirah's backyard.
A Gauteng woman has confessed that she battered her nephew to death and buried the body in her backyard.
Gauteng lady arrested for allegedly killing her 16-year-old nephew who had paid her a visit at her Tsakane home, dropped her bail application when she appeared in court on Monday.
Lumka Mahanjana, a spokesperson for the director of public prosecutions in North Gauteng, said Mthembu, 36, appeared in Tsakane District Court on charges of murdering her nephew. Neo Mahlangu has been recognized as the relative in the media.
Mthembu is charged with murder and perverting the course of justice. Mthembu is accused of killing her 16-year-old nephew with a stick on May 20, 2022, and forcing her 14-year-old son to hold the corpse down while being assaulted to death, Mahanjana added.

In court, Mthembu admitted to committing the alleged offenses in front of Magistrate Nico Venter in his chambers because her nephew had admitted to stealing money from her. Mthembu was apprehended on Friday after her son texted photos of the horrific occurrence to a cousin in KwaZulu-Natal.
The relatives then phoned the cops, and Mthembu showed them where she buried the deceased's remains. The case has been adjourned to April 12, 2022 for additional investigation and transfer to the regional court, Mahanjana stated.
Major General Girly Mbele, the acting provincial commissioner of police in Gauteng, denounced the incident in which the adolescent boy was allegedly battered to death by his aunt and buried in the backyard earlier on Monday.
