Two in court for murder of day mom, baby

Two men appeared in the Delmas Magistrate's Court on Thursday in connection with the murder of a day mother and a five-month-old baby boy.

Mpumalanga police spokesman Lt-Col Leonard Hlathi said Enock Mbele, 44, and Lazarus Mabhena, 54, were denied bail.

“The matter was postponed to June 7 for further investigation.”

He said the men were arrested on Tuesday and were found in possession of jewellery and a cellphone which police believe belonged to the victim.

The woman, Margrietha de Goede, 66, and baby were found strangled in her home last Wednesday.

The day mother's body was found under a carpet in an outside room. The baby was found under a bed in the main house. - Sapa
