A South African mother recognized as Zinhle Maditla on Monday
September 9, conceded to a four count charge of killing her four youngsters with rodent poison.


Maditla who confessed of murdering her kids when charged in a Middelburg High Court, said her annoyance and dissatisfaction originated from becoming more acquainted with that the dad of two of her kids was with another lady.
In her plea statement which was read out by her lawyer, the Mpumalanga resident revealed she also took the rat poison. She went on to ask the court for mercy.
“I admit I have no defence in law for my conduct on that day. I request the court for mercy.
"I went back home, I sat in the taxi emotional and crying I saw a hawker selling rat poison I took R10 and bought poison with the intention to kill myself and my children" she said.
The case was adjourned till Tuesday September 10.
