North West woman appears for murder


A woman appeared in the Mmabatho Magistrates' Court on Wednesday for allegedly stabbing her partner to death, North West police said.

The husband stabbed his wife to death and daughter sustained wounds.

Barileng Pholoholo, 40, was granted bail at R500, Colonel Sabata Mokgwabone said.

She would appear in court again on April 30.

Pholoholo was arrested on Monday.

“Police were called to a certain house in Rooigrond [Mahikeng] where a 53-year-old man was found dead with multiple stab wounds on the body.

“The victim was certified dead on the scene and the suspect, who was found in possession of a blood-covered knife in her hand, was arrested,” Mokgwabone said.
