Brits – A woman who confessed to being the mastermind of a hit on her parents and siblings six years ago, will appear before the Brits Magistrates’ Court on Thursday 13 January.

The woman, who allegedly committed the crime in December 2016 while she was still 16 years old, will appear before the court with the two alleged hitmen. National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) spokesperson Lumka Mahanjana told Platinum Weekly that the trio will apply for bail during their appearance. 

Police spokesperson lieutenant colonel Amanda Funani said the arrests were made in December 2021 after the woman went to Mmakau police station and admitted to killing her family members. 
On that fateful day, Tuesday 6 December 2016…

According to the 2016 police report, the mastermind suspect, then 16 years old, went outside to dispose of the water she used to wash dishes. She apparently heard gunshots and run inside when she also got shot – in the thigh.

The suspects fled the scene with the family’s car, a Chrysler Voyager. The daughter then alerted neighbours who called the police. 

• Four murders were committed that day. 
The lifeless bodies of her father (the then 42-year-old police officer), his 40-year-old wife, their 18-year-old pregnant daughter as well as a six-year-old boy were all found lying in a pool of blood.

The woman and the two alleged hitmen – both aged 23 – are facing five counts of murder and armed robbery.
