Man held for killing his 2 wives

2011-02-15 20:54

Pretoria - A 47-year old man was arrested by police on Tuesday in a village near East London for allegedly killing both his wives by stabbing and clubbing them, police said.

Lieutenant Colonel Mtati Tana said neighbours, concerned at the screaming and crying emanating from the man's rondavel, had alerted police.

When officers from the police station in Chalumna, about 50km west of East London, arrived at the man's home in the early hours of the morning and found him standing outside the rondavel.

"He was just standing there. He didn't run away," said Tana.

The two women were found dead in the house and police seized a knobkerrie and a knife.

The man was taken into custody and is expected to appear in the Mdantsane Magistrate's Court on two charges of murder on Friday.

Tana said the man's name and that of his two wives, aged 42 and 47 years, could not be released as next of kin still needed to be informed of the deaths.

The motive for the killing was also not known, he said.

      There was no racial comments about this comment. Al he/she meant was, there is so many killings and it keeps on happening. You get black, brown, yellow and white farmers, for those who does not know that!

    the editor is very biased in not publishing reasonable and factual comments submitted.

      Rover_ZA - 2011-02-16 09:52

      There is nothing reasonable about your comments. They are pathetic and illogical.

    Why do men insist on having so many wives. One man can't even please one women what makes him think he can please 2. It should be the other way around - the women should have multiple husbands. We can please more than one man at a time!!

    Some of the men commenting here should clearly get divorced. If living with your wife is such hell for you, I guarantee she regrets every day of the union. So do yourselves a favour and get divorced. Murder is not the solution, but getting a mirror to look in might be - maybe you'll realise that it takes two to f*ck up a marriage oh mighty man

      SickofSAcrap - 2011-02-16 09:15

      Well said Bumblebee!! Its no longer just a man's world!! You men that are so unhappy with your lives, find an attorney and get divorced. Your wife would probably be better off without your sexist crap anyway. Men are under the serious misconception that its only women that moan, if you take a closer look you will see that you guys moan just as much, if not more.
