A 44-YEAR-OLD man on Tuesday admitted to hacking a friend to death in Mid-Illovu whom he believed was having an affair with his partner.

On September 17, Sinethemba Mgxozana (44) pleaded guilty in the Pietermaritzburg High Court to killing Thembalipheli Ngoduka on July 7.

Both men worked on the same sugar cane farm and lived at the same compound.

Mgxozana lived with his partner and their two children.

Mgxozana told the court that he has been in love with his partner for nine years and that he became very angry when he found out that she was having an affair with Ngoduka.

He went to Ngoduka’s room and confronted him about the affair.

The men argued and Ngoduka told him to leave or else he would beat him up.

Mgxozana said he then hit Ngoduka twice on the head with a bush knife.
