Melitta Sekole was walking to work to the town of vivo at 5am when she was attacked by the Masebe ‘s two pitbulls at Ga – Makgatho village outside Senwabarwana, which ripped her clothes and bit her, badly injuring her.

Melita 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 died a few days later.

She will be buried today.

Masebe appeared in the Senwabarwana magistrate’s court and was remanded until Thursday, the 5th of January.

The ANC organized demonstrations against Masebe at court.
