A lot of murders occur in South Africa, but not too many arrests – at least when the victim was white.
This is almost surprising.
Three accused were arrested on Wednesday 10 July 2019, after the body of Anna Herbst (61) was found burnt beyond recognition in her home in Martindale, Bloemfontein on Saturday morning 6 July 2019. It was immediately clear she was murdered as her burnt body was found still tied up. She stayed alone.
She was known as Bloemfontein`s pancake lady as she sold pancakes for a living outside the D and J Butchers in Generaal de Wet, Bloemfontein.
One of the arrested suspects is Lehlohonolo Gift Mans who is 18. The other 2 accused are 18 and 19 years old. Mans was convicted of hijacking in 2017 and sentenced to 15 years in jail but he escaped from prison at the time.
Mrs Herbst’s pancake money was missing from her car after her murder.
Yup, killed and then set on fire over mere pocket money.
That’s blacks for you.
