THE SOUTH African Police Service (SAPS) is investigating the murder of 38-year-old Mathebe Assegaai, who was fatally shot at her home in John Daka, Galeshewe, in the early hours of Saturday morning.

According to police spokesperson Lieutenant-Colonel Sergio Kock, the incident unfolded at around 2am as Assegaai was preparing to leave for work at Keipoletse Funeral Services.

While waiting for her transport at her front gate, she was shot in the head by an unknown assailant wearing a balaclava. The suspect fled the scene immediately after the shooting.

“The female victim was discovered with a wound to the back of her head and died on the scene,” said Kock.

Witnesses reported that Assegaai’s colleagues were sitting inside the company vehicle, waiting for her to join them when the incident occurred.
