Three men were arrested for murdering two sisters in their home in Kutloanong, near Odendaalsrus, Free State police said yesterday.
Sergeant Malebo Khosana said that four men in their 20s stormed into the home of the sisters on Saturday night looking for Masetjhaba Moeti, 24, with whose boyfriend they had a long-standing quarrel.
"We believe that the men killed Masetjhaba to take revenge on her boyfriend, with whom they have a long-standing rivalry," said Moeti.
The naked bodies of the two sisters were found in their bedroom.
Moeti had several stab wounds to her body.
Her younger sister, Susan, 16, had a bullet wound in her forehead and a cloth was wrapped around her waist.
"We suspect that both women were raped before being murdered. Their mother managed to hide and survived the attack," said Khosana.
Police seized a knife, believed to have been used in the murder, from the three arrested men. No firearm was recovered.
The fourth man is still at large. Police are appealing to anyone with information that could lead to his arrest to contact Inspector Madinda Radebe on 083-239-3932. - Sapa
