South Africa: Pitbulls Owner Charged With Culpable Homicide After The Dogs Killed A Woman

South Africa: Pitbulls Owner Charged With Culpable Homicide After The Dogs Killed A Woman

The Limpopo woman who was mauled by two Pitbulls in Senwabarwana has died in hospital a development that has led to the arrest of the owner of the dogs over culpable homicide.

Melitta Sekole (43) was reportedly walking from a residential area in the Mara policing precinct towards Vivo on Friday at about 5 am when she was attacked by the dogs, which ripped her clothes and bit her. TimesLive quotes police spokesperson Colonel Malesela Ledwaba as saying:

She was rescued by community members and taken to hospital in a critical condition.

Sekole was later transferred to the provincial hospital in Polokwane where she succumbed to the injuries on Friday.

Ledwaba said the dogs’ owner, Nchabeleng Charles Masebe (62) was arrested and a case of culpable homicide was opened.

He appeared in the Senwabarwana magistrate’s court and was remanded until Thursday.

In November 2022, South Africa urged owners of Pitbulls to surrender their pets to the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA) following a spate of cases in which they were killing people.

The South African Pitbull Federation said the pets were now becoming a danger to society especially in cases where there were limited resources to take care of them.

This is a very sorrowful story. It is unfortunate that the dogs victim died.

It is in terms of the law that the owner of the dogs is going to be charged with Culpable Homicide which means negligently causing the death of another person unintentionally.

There are very few people who can not be convicted in a court of law because in many cases the dogs may not have been on leash.

This is very serious if the dogs were not on leash or the gate was left open.

[ WHY SHOULD CITIZENS VOTE FOR THE CORRUPT ZANU PF ? ].

[ CITIZENS MUST VOTE FOR CCC POLITICAL PARTY FOR REAL CHANGE, SHANDUKO KWAYO ].

Yours faithfully
