AN 84-year-old Tsholotsho woman has been arrested for stock theft. Qina Mlalazi of Gariya Grazing Area allegedly obliterated existing brands on stray cattle and superimposed her own.

She was arrested on Wednesday when she used the same trick on a cow that strayed into her homestead.

Mlalazi said she took it for granted that no one would claim the beast as it had been in her kraal for a long time.

"I admit to changing the brand, although I wasn't aware that I was stealing. The beast came on its own into my kraal. Can we really call that stealing?" she asked the arresting officer.

The officer Commanding Police in Lupane District, Chief Superintendent Johannes Govo, said a police officer patrolling the area for rustlers discovered the theft.
