During proceedings, the court heard that Manku allegedly confessed to ordering a hit on his mother-in-law, Maphuthuma.

According to the investigation officer in the case, Manku confessed that he found people to kill Maphuthuma and drove with them to show them where she lived.

“He then pointed to his mother-in-law’s house, and they returned to Gauteng. The hitmen came back on their own as he had given them instructions to kill his mother-in-law,” the investigator said.

While justice may take time, the progress in the case brings some comfort to Manku and her family. Dealing with such a tragedy is never easy, but their strength and resilience shine through during these challenging times.
