Mother admits staging 'muti murder'

A mother who stabbed and strangled her five-year-old son to death before cutting off his ear and penis has told the Pretoria High Court she was "very sorry" for what she had done.

She was "down and out", and feared her son would become a well-known criminal like his father, she said.

The 26-year-old Tembisa mother, Batseba Irene Lekgeu, on Monday pleaded guilty to killing her second-born child, Andile in November, 2008.

Lekgeu explained that after killing the child, she cut off his ear and penis to make it look like a muti murder.
