    Johannesburg - A 50-year-old Democratic Alliance researcher was found dead in her home in Ottoshoop, North West, at the weekend.


    Three people allegedly entered Sherril Bester's home and attacked her with a blunt object on Saturday night, Sergeant Kelebogile Moleko said on Monday.


    “She was found with marks on her head and neck and was also believed to have been strangled.”


    Bester had friends visiting at her home earlier on Saturday but was alone at the time of the attack.


    “After her friends left, the three people entered her home and attacked her,” said Moleko.


    They allegedly loaded some of Bester's clothes and food onto the back of her bakkie and fled the scene. Police then received a report that the bakkie had crashed into a gate in a nearby township. It was found abandoned with Bester's food and clothes still inside.


    “After further investigation, we found that the bakkie belonged to the woman and when we went to her home we found her dead,” said Moleko.


    No arrests had been made.


    The DA said Bester was their researcher in the North West provincial legislature.


    “Sherril was a loyal and trustworthy employee in the DA's legislature office for most of the past 10 years, during which she reported almost daily on incidents like the one that cost her life,” DA provincial leader Chris Hattingh said.

    Her being a researcher as opposed to a Councillor etc my money is another senseless murder, and that the headline is simply sensationalism.

    Any opposition politician-Councillor or researcher- is a potential target to the ANC poo flingers (or "cadres/activists" as they call themselves). I've been on a couple of online forums and the pure bile you hear from the cANCer groupies cannot be described as anything less than hate speech and incitement to violence. Any opposition supporter-DA, COPE, even EFF- is unworthy of life to these thugs.
