In what appears to be a selfless service to her country, a 51-year-old mother identified as Phumzile Mofokeng, has been honoured during the Free State police excellence awards ceremony in Sasolburg, South Africa, for reporting her killer son to the necessary authorities.
It was gathered that Phumzile Mofokeng was the brain behind the prosecution of her killer son who had murdered his own girlfriend.
During the awards night held on Friday, October 19, 2018, at Kopano Nokeng Lodge, Bloemfontein, alongside 30 cops were winners.
Speaking to Daily Sun she said: “My son (29) was in love with his high school sweetheart.
He got a job in Gauteng and took care of the woman’s family. He heard his girlfriend was allegedly in love with a blesser and that made him sad.
“In May, he came and stole his father’s gun and shot his girlfriend. I reported him at Zamdela cop shop and he was arrested and the gun was found.
I was surprised when I got the award, but I am honoured to be chosen.”
