He was only 3 years old

A 27-year-old woman has been arrested for the alleged murder of her three-year-old son at Ntshatshongo, near Willowvale, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

“It is alleged that the three-year-old deceased was sleeping with his mother (who is now the suspect) on the night of Saturday at their home, which is at Ntshatshongo Location, Willowvale,” said Captain Jackson Manatha.

He said family members found the deceased bleeding and already dead on the Sunday morning, and police suspect the mother beat the young boy to death.  

“The 27-year-old mother of the deceased was arrested and charged for murder, as she was the only person who was sleeping with the infant.”

To kill a 3 year old, you must beat him harder than you might expect. Blak motherly love, SA style!
Poor little innocent thing, the heavens cry for you.

Just let us say sympathetic things, and not expect real change, because we have to vote for the party that can not deal harshly and consistently with criminals. And yes, gentle readers, the "mother" is a criminal.

How can a mother kill her own child??? A mother is there to protect and care for her child !! He is only 3years old and can not defend himself. Shame on you as a mother. Hope you rot in jail. I'm a mother too and cant see how I'll ever be able to harm my own child.
