“She explained to officers that on July 17 the accused had allegedly poured boiling water on her sister and she had to be rushed to hospital.

“The hospital called her a few days later saying her sister had died, and fearing the accused would flee to Lesotho, where he is from, she rushed to inform police of the incident,” said Sgt Styles Maome, communications officer for the Primrose police.
