Dad shoots son in attack on wife - cops

2012-01-04 13:35

Polokwane - A woman's estranged husband allegedly shot dead their son who walked in on her being gang-raped and mutilated by him and his workers, Limpopo police said on Wednesday.

When the couple's 19-year-old son walked in on the crime at their Modimolle home on Tuesday, his father shot him dead.

"It is alleged the husband confronted his estranged wife carrying a .22 rifle at her house on Tuesday around 17:00, accompanied by his three employees," Brigadier Hangwani Mulaudzi said.

The 51-year-old husband, with the help of his workers, tied the woman to a bed in her home, before her husband allegedly ordered them to rape her at gunpoint. He also allegedly tried to cut off her nipples with a grinder.

"While the three were raping the woman, his 19-year-old son arrived at the house and without any provocation his father shot him in the head. He died on the spot."

The man fled in his white Toyota Fortuner registration number DCS 392 FS. The three workers also ran away and their whereabouts were unknown.

Mulaudzi said the woman was being kept at a place of safety.

Anyone with information that may help the police could call Lieutenant Colonel Malisela Mohale on 082 5658606.

      Perfume - 2012-01-04 14:00

      Let him and his accomplices be sent to prison and raped repeatedly every day of the lives, for the pain they put this woman through - how will she ever heal from these scars.

    It boggles the mind...How much hatred must this guy have in him to shoot his son in cold blood and torture his (ex)wife? I hope the police shoot him on sight!

  • Nitronic - 2012-01-04 13:49

    Sick Sick Sick!!!! He will burn for eternity!!!!

  • Dean Kenad - 2012-01-04 13:50

    Even if he is caught and prosecuted and sent to jail he will be out on parole AFTER SERVING LESS THAN 5YRS IN JAIL DEATH PENALTY PLEASE!!!!!

      Perfume - 2012-01-04 14:01

      He will wish that they killed him, in prison he will bend for soap every minute of the day - his accomplices might even turn on him in prison.

      Squeegee - 2012-01-05 12:38

      Dean, once agin you are displaying your ignorance.

  • Philip - 2012-01-04 13:52

    Shoot to kill!

  • rickvcooper - 2012-01-04 13:52

    Demon scum!

  • ifundi - 2012-01-04 13:53

    Polokwane seems to be a very ESTRANGED place all round

      TaniaSandraSteyn - 2012-01-04 14:58

      It must be blowing over from Zim. Sick beyond description.

      Van - 2012-01-05 02:20

      it is all the DDT in the water or even Apartheid.

    What the hell has become of some men

  • acsteyn - 2012-01-04 13:56

    For once I am speechless. Where do these people come from? Are they genetically misformed perhaps? This is true plain horrific and needs to be dealt with accordingly.

      Albert - 2012-01-04 14:00

      Just in a very early stage of evalution

      Richie - 2012-01-04 14:16

      this guys deserve to die,am tired of this crazy south africa law that sates that a dead person does not have a statement,let them be killed on the spot,no need for investigation becos investigation takes forever,how can u just end a young boys future like that

      Debbi - 2012-01-04 14:39

      His ID states that he is from South West Africa so he must have been here for quite some time. Sick bastard. Extradite him to Namibia and let them deal with him.

  • Perfume - 2012-01-04 13:59

    Shoot them on site!!!! He will never take away the pain he has caused this woman, he is beyond sick, I cannot find the right words to describe this vile man. My blood boils!!!!!

  • Deon - 2012-01-04 14:04

    The truth is stranger than fiction.

  • Johan Britz - 2012-01-04 14:05

    On one hand he deserves death, but on the other that would be too light a punishment. He should rot and get raped in jail for the rest of his life. Unfortunately though, this coward will probably kill himself if he hasn't already.

  • daniel.w.gie - 2012-01-04 14:07

    I am at loss for words ...truly .

  • nonceba.motsisi - 2012-01-04 14:15

    What a BAD man that is. God will neva forgive him and I wish he can be caught and taken to China for execution, NXA. Sick world this is.

  • Godfried - 2012-01-04 14:17

    Is anyone still thinking that the death penalty is not necessary in this country? This rubbish need to be eradicated from society!

      Perfume - 2012-01-04 14:20

      Zuma said the death penalty is not a deterrent, how would he ever know, he is guarded every minute of the day. This woman deserves justice, an eye for an eye.

  • Lionel - 2012-01-04 14:18

  • henriette.legrange - 2012-01-04 14:21

    How sick can one person be? Any further news, did anyone get arrested yet?

  • Gerda - 2012-01-04 14:21

    With an ex husband like him who needs an enemy. Next we will hear he committed suicide or jumped the border. My condolences to the mother and pray she will recover from her terrible ordeal.

      Perfume - 2012-01-04 14:24

      It will take her a lifetime to heal from this Reunion - he has caused her life long scars, scars of the rape, and the deepest pain a parent can feel the death of her son. He needs to be hunted down like a rabid dog.

  • Napolita - 2012-01-04 14:21

    I pray and hope the killer and the rapists are caught and brought to justice. As always it will be interesting to witness who of them will do the most time in jail.

  • Valerie - 2012-01-04 14:23

    Unbelievable. This man should be hanged in public

      sonwabile.nomnganga - 2012-01-04 14:54

    Gruesome crimes are coming from Limpopo...

  • Kobus - 2012-01-04 14:31

    This is so evil.

  • tamoshe - 2012-01-04 14:34

    South Africa should wake up, its time to introduce the death penalty, in other countries people are being executed for drugs related offenses, atleast for a premeditated murder like this one, they ought to hang

  • Tebogo - 2012-01-04 14:36

    Iam speechless,some cops are sick,maybe its about time they go on some psychological ttest or something

      Elize - 2012-01-04 15:13

      Was he a cop??

  • Yolandi - 2012-01-04 14:38

    This is so terrible, hope they find him and give him a taste of his own medicine.

  • Vicky - 2012-01-04 14:39

    sick what the world is coming to!

  • Vicky - 2012-01-04 14:39

    sick what the world is coming 2!

  • Tough - 2012-01-04 14:43

    This is really sad. What on earth could drive a man to do this to a woman he (maybe) loved at some stage and a child?? The mind boggles...

  • The-Azanian - 2012-01-04 14:46

    poor mother...government bring death back death penalty in mzansi before the country becomes resident evil. some crimes are hard to believe.

  • Power - 2012-01-04 14:48

    @betweenuandme, you have a very valid point there and I take note. It could be benefecial to protect the family, but is that more important than to catch the bugger ??? Maybe I am wrong.

  • lhenama - 2012-01-04 14:51

    Geez that's just being evil

  • marc.potgieter1 - 2012-01-04 14:53


  • christo.dreyer - 2012-01-04 14:55

    I just wish News24 can get their facts right please! The young man who was shot was a school friend of mine's son. His dad did NOT shoot him. It was the boys' mums' ex boyfriend or estranged husband that did it. Our prayers are with the whole family during this terribly difficult time.

      Perfume - 2012-01-04 15:05

      Strength to you all during this tough time.

  • velilejonathan.williams - 2012-01-04 15:00

    Strange that up to this day no identity of the husband has been released.Surely there must have been a picture of the husband in the house.

  • Perfume - 2012-01-04 15:04

    Thumbs down = angry trolls or perhaps those in agreement with what this man did - ignoramus

  • Coral - 2012-01-04 15:06

    What in Gods name is this world coming to??????

  • Gavin - 2012-01-04 15:15

    WTF is going on in our beloved country ???? People like this need to be removed from the gene pool pronto. I remember days when we had a police force and not a police service. Catch it - kill it.

  • Trevor - 2012-01-04 15:16

    Tragic.....and the ANC....wants to party.....what this South Africa turning into...RIP...the lady will live with this for the rest of her days..."sterkte"

  • Jason Morgan - 2012-01-04 15:19

    My heartfelt condolences goes to the poor woman's family my her son souls rest in peace. When the perpetrators finally get caught including her estranged husband should be thrown into the crocodile infested rivers or dams. And I dont think the lions in kruger national park would be offended if those bustards can be thrown to their territory's as a death penalty for their horrendous crimes.

  • Michael Koenane - 2012-01-04 15:23

    WTF is going on? I can't put mind around this. Orders other men to rape his wife, want's to cut off her nipples with a grinder and shoots his own son in the head?

  • Edith-Ann - 2012-01-04 15:29

    How much can a husband actually hates his wife....... ? Shocking!

  • theGospel - 2012-01-04 15:37

    For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. It doesn't say Kill your wives.... Condolences to the family in this hard times in their son, and may the good God strengthern the Woman too.
