Five dead after FS mother poisons her children and herself


A Free State mother and her four children, aged between four and eight, are dead after she poisoned the minors and herself because of a marital dispute.

The children’s grandmother made the gruesome discovery in their home in QwaQwa Saturday, police said.

It’s understood that the 29-year-old woman poisoned her children and ingested poison herself after an argument with her husband.

Police said only a six-month-old baby survived the tragedy.

“She apparently left her marital house and returned to her parents’ home with her kids. It was on Saturday when the mother found her 29-year-old daughter and her five children laying on the floor. A case of inquest and murder case has been registered for further investigation,” said police spokesperson Brigadier Motantsi Makhele. Protection Status
