DOUBLE TRAGEDY: Cindy (l) and Keabetswe Suane (r)

Residents of Sheep Farm settlement in the Barolong area are reeling from shock after a harrowing murder-suicide unfolded in their neighbourhood last Tuesday afternoon.

The incident involved a 46-year-old man, Keabetswe Suane, who is believed to have tragically stabbed his wife, Cindy Suane, before hanging himself in the same house.

Keabetswe, originally from Goo-Mabe ward in Molepolole, was found hanging by a rope from the rafters, while Cindy, from Sheep Farm, lay lifeless on the floor, surrounded by a pool of blood with multiple stab wounds to her chest and arm.

A blood-stained butcher knife, believed to be the murder weapon, was found next to Cindy.

The couple’s residence details remain unclear, but we have heard that Keabetswe worked as a tailor in Lesotho, and they typically visited their Sheep Farm home during holidays,” Superintendent Matlho explained.

A post-mortem was conducted on Friday, but the police have yet to determine a motive for this tragic incident.

Investigations are ongoing as authorities seek to uncover the reasons behind the tragedy.
