The man who allegedly killed seven of his family members on Christmas day has appeared in the Malamulele Magistrates Court, South Africa.
However, the case was postponed to 5 January 2022, in order for the accused to get a legal representative and for further investigations.
Azwidohwi Enoch Ndou, who faces seven counts of murder, is accused of killing his relatives at Jimmy Jones Village in the Malamulele area, in Limpopo.
The 52-year-old nurse handed himself over to the police in Thohoyandou, after allegedly shooting four children and three adults, including a heavily pregnant woman.
“It is alleged that Ndou went on a killing spree on Saturday morning as the family members were fighting for a stand that belongs to their father,” said the National Prosecuting Authority’s (NPA’s) Limpopo spokesperson Mashudu Malabi Dzhangi.
The seven deceased have been identified as:
- Mpho Donald Ndou, 33
