Mrs Robinson, a former primary school teacher, jointly owned the game lodge with her husband, Robbie, who died from cancer two years ago. Her niece Lehanne Sergison, 43, from Bickley, Kent, said friends and family are "heartbroken".

We know very little. She was murdered on Wednesday. We haven't had much joy out of the police in South Africa, so we don't really know anything more than that.
