The police arrested a 15-year-old youth from Kalanswa on Monday morning, suspected of murdering his 20-year-old sister for 'violating' the family's honor. On Monday morning, the father of the family called the police station in Taibe and said "My son has murdered his sister." Upon receiving the call, the policemen rushed to the scene, where they found the father and 15-year-old boy near the body of the 20-year-old woman. The youth, who was still holding the alleged murder weapon, was taken in for questioning.
