ANOTHER Pietermaritzburg resident died in a domestic argument, while an Im bali man accused of shooting his wife and killing his 10-year-old son appeared in the Pietermaritzburg Magistrate’s court yesterday.

Thulani Vidima (54) has been remanded in custody for seven days.

Vidima allegedly shot his wife on Sunday after an argument, and killed his son, Boy Malibongwe Vidima, when the children, aged 16 and 10, tried to intervene. The mother is in a stable condition.

On Tuesday, a 52-year-old man was killed after an argument with his wife. Jeevan said the couple argued while the wife was cooking at their home in Caluza.

The man apparently grabbed a vegetable knife and stabbed at his wife, but she got the knife and stabbed him in the chest. He died on the kitchen floor and she fled, but was arrested later and will appear in court soon.
