A 16-year-old girl from Limpopo has been arrested for killing her own mother.
The police is also on the hunt for her alleged accomplice in connection with the murder of the teen's mother.
The incident happened on Wednesday at around 10pm in Lesedi Park.
Limpopo police spokesperson Brig Motlafela Mojapelo said the girl allegedly met her “accomplice” near her home on the outskirts of Polokwane.
“The girl … had a conversation in which she reportedly told him that her mother, 44, was denying her freedom and that she wanted to get rid of her.
“The two then went to the house to wait for the girl's mother. The mother arrived home and seemingly was attacked with a frying pan and collapsed. It is reported that the suspect further strangled her. They thereafter dragged her to the bedroom and left her.
“The girl [then apparently] slept in her mother's motor vehicle that night and only reported the matter to the police the following day on March 16 and alleged that she found her mother in a pool of blood.
