Details of arrest

Ndou was arrested after he handed himself over to police in Thohoyandou.

Police have since said that they suspect a dispute over a family house as the possible motive for the killing.

Police further say the accused was reportedly at odds with his elder brother’s sons over a house left by his late father.

Among his victims were one-year-old child Wanga Ndou, Ronewa Ndou aged four, eight-year-old Dakalo Ndou and Winnus Ndou aged 12.

The accused’s late brother’s sons, Mpho and Ndivhuwo, Ndivhuwo’s pregnant wife, Portia Mabasa, were also among those killed.

The new year marked a sombre start for the family and friends of the murdered family members.
