JOHANNESBURG - Police are awaiting the post-mortem results of a woman who allegedly died after being forced to drink rat poison during a robbery.
It's understood Thoko Zukisi was robbed by an unknown number of suspects shortly after withdrawing money at a bank at a Benoni shopping centre.
The police's Lungelo Dlamini says preliminary investigations show she was dragged into a vehicle, forced to drink poison and was then dumped along the N12 highway.
"She had her cellphone and phoned somebody and then they came to pick her up. She died a day later. At this stage, we don't know who the suspects are."
