A 29-year-old step father working as a herder at Lekgolwe cattlepost was arrested on Saturday, a week after he allegedly murdered two toddlers following a dispute with their mother.
He allegedly found his girlfriend sleeping with her mother and her two children and requested to see her for a talk. While out talking, the children's grandmother heard her daughter screaming for help. Rushing to the scene outside the house to check what was happening, the grandmother saw her daughter running for dear life away from the boyfriend. She charged after her fleeing daughter, but abandoned the pursuit only to return to find the lifeless bodies of her grandchildren.
