A 61-year-old woman was killed and her daughter injured when two men attacked them at their home in Mount Fletcher, Eastern Cape police said on Friday.

The woman was with her six children when they were attacked with sticks at their homestead on Thursday afternoon, Lieutenant Raphael Motloung said.

“The suspects allegedly torched the hut and then left.”

The woman's 16-year-old daughter, who was injured in the attack, managed to escape with her siblings to a neighbouring homestead and call the police.

The woman died on the scene. No arrests had been made and the motive for the attack was unknown. - Sapa
