Police have confirmed that a 24-year-old intern from Pam Golding Properties has been arrested for the murder of former Southlands Secondary principal, Gona Pillay, and the attempted murder of her husband, Loga, on Wednesday afternoon.
Southlands Secondary School announced Mrs Gona Pillay’s death on its official Facebook page on Wednesday night.
Pillay’s husband who was also attacked during the brazen robbery was critical in hospital. It is believed the couple were brutally stabbed in their Silverglen home in Chatsworth after assuming that they visitors were intending to view their home that was for sale.
Andreas Mathios, spokesperson for Blue Security, said the men named a legitimate estate agent who worked for a reputable estate agency.
CEO of the property franchise, Andrew Golding, issued a statement saying, “Unfortunately, it is alleged that one of the people implicated in this crime is an intern agent working out of the Pam Golding Properties Amanzimtoti franchise office. Needless to say, we are shocked and deeply saddened at this terrible news. Our deepest condolences will be extended to the family, friends and community associated with the victims of this awful event.”
