ANOTHER #MURDER: Hazendal grandmother found brutally murdered. She was stabbed & beaten to death!!!

GENOCIDE VICTIM: Willemina Keneur, 83
■ 24 Jun '16: Cape Town - The brutal murder of an elderly woman in her home has sparked a “swell of anger” through Athlone with residents promising to hunt down her killers, helping the local Community Policing Forum (CPF) and police.

Willemina Keneur, 83, was described as a kind-hearted person who always opened her doors in Herbrand Street, Hazendal, to the needy.

Her bruised body was discovered on Tuesday, apparently by her grandson who had returned from college.

She had been stabbed to death. It is also believed she was beaten before her death.

Police spokeswoman Constable Noloyiso Rwexana said a case of murder was being investigated. Athlone CPF member Aziza Kannemeyer said the community of Bokmakierie was “extremely upset”.

“The way she was murdered is terrible,” said Kannemeyer.

She said drug addiction was one of the demons the Athlone community had been battling with as it spurred on crime and theft.

“I think the crime in our area is mostly break-ins for people to feed their addictions.”

Anyone with information that can assist with the investigation is requested to contact Crime Stop on 08600 10111.
