A-14-YEAR-Old juvenile from Binga who allegedly killed his six year old sister for speaking in IsiNdebele has been arrested.

The fugitive minor was allegedly hiding out in a cave near his home. 

The suspect from Mulindi village, under chief Dobola, whose name is withheld for ethical reasons, is suspected to have killed Senzeni Sibanda, Grade One pupil at Mulindi Primary School, last Tuesday.

He severely assaulted his sister and threw her into a river resulting in her drowning.

He committed the crime while they were on their way to school.

The juvenile fled the scene and went into hiding last Wednesday after a search party discovered the body.

Following a tip-off, police ambushed the minor who was allegedly hiding in a cave at a mountain, some few kilometres away from his village.

Police and neighbourhood watch committee members pounced on the juvenile in the early hours of Monday.

Mudenda was found with blankets in the cave.

Villagers suspected his family hid him there and provided him with blankets, to protect him as they feared he would go to jail.
