As reported by EWN, Limpopo spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi said the minor was released with conditions because of the seriousness of the offence and that she must not interfere with the witnesses and not travel outside of Limpopo province without informing the investigating officer.
