Jilted woman torches partner's shack

2012-11-17 14:14

Johannesburg - A Germiston man died in hospital after his partner of six years allegedly set fire to his shack while he was asleep with another woman, according to a report on Saturday.

The Saturday Star reported that the woman allegedly doused the shack in Delmo Park with petrol after a neighbour told her that her boyfriend, Thomas Mamuthubi, was being unfaithful.

Mamuthubi and his mistress escaped from the blaze, but he died from his injuries three hours later. The extent of the woman's injuries was unknown.

The alleged arsonist was later arrested and would appear in Boksburg Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    Revenge is a bitch...literally

      Perhaps she wanted to rekindle the fire they once had in their marriage? Sadly his cheating ways made him go out in a blaze of glory. Incidents like this are a burning issue in our community.

      U don't fully understand what Love can do to a person.....that's why u speak that way

    Sister you have elevated the hell hath no fury like a woman scorned to the dizzy heights. But now is the payback time. What happened to walking away if things did not worked up? He is dead now but the debt you are going to pay is gargantuan. I hope you rot in jail. In case you lay your hands on William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar and provided of cause that you have any literacy skills read what he said about love. Just a little quote:\when love begins to sicken and decay, it useth an enforced ceremony\. Farewell on your journey to prison and take care!

    I do feel for both of them, the man and the girlfriend even the mistress if she was not aware of the other woman. Love Sex are too much for many humans, when you get involved with a person just leave space in your heart that this person might have sex or fall in love with another person. That's how things are....its Nature.

    who is to say he died from the fire... he could have suffered heart attack for being with lover & realised the girlfriend now knew about it --- it was probably his own stress that caused his death

      debduplessis - 2012-11-17 14:52

      the most girlfriend should be "held" for is malicious damage to probably illegally set up shack in which case she did nothing wrong!

      sthembiso.jali.50 - 2012-11-17 14:56

      Dude u sound like a lawyer.

      siphom.mnguni - 2012-11-17 15:34

      Just read this case: S v Thembani. The accused shot his girlfriend and she was hospitalised for 14 days. And it was discovered that the hospital stuff were negligent and the deceased's wounds became sceptic and she died. The accused was found guilty of murder on conditeo sine qua non. He took the case to the Supreme Court of Appeal and his appeal was dismissed.
