“We were attending the funeral of my nephew’s mother. One of the young children needed a nappy change so the older girls went back home, that is where they found mom had been murdered. When the children came back to report what they had found, the funeral had already ended. We were cleaning and packing.

“I could not even enter the room. My mother could walk and do other things. We are deeply hurt about how she was taken away from us. As the family we had recently celebrated her birthday,” she said.

The incident comes a day after the Police Ministry released the quarterly crime statistics which pointed to a 4.2% increase in murders of women between October 2020 and December 2021.
