Love triangle ends in tragedy

2016-03-23 06:00

ONE man died and another is fighting for his life in hospital after a shoot-out over a woman on Monday night in Enhlalakahle.
It is reported that taxi driver, Sifiso Thusi, received a message on his phone telling him that a woman he had been seeing was with another man.
He tried to phone her, but got no response. Then he went to her house and knocked on the door, but again there was no response.
He then forced the door open and the situation spun out of control as the man inside, an off-duty policeman, who has not been named, and Sifiso started shooting at each other. Sifiso was killed and the other man seriously injured.

Sifiso, who operated a taxi between Greytown and Johannesburg, actually came from Ndwedwe.
His family in Ndwedwe and his fiancée Hlengiwe Zondi expressed their surprise at the news of his affair as he and Hlengiwe were due to be married at the end of the year. The woman involved in the triangle, who works in Greytown, has not been seen since the shooting.

Stop press: A report received on Tuesday morning said the woman involved, Zama Ngubane, was shot

by unknown persons while in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday and is in critical condition in hospital.
