Johannesburg - A man was arrested for allegedly shooting dead someone in Zola who he suspected was having a relationship with his girlfriend, Soweto police said on Sunday.

Warrant Officer Kay Makhubela said the 28-year-old man found his girlfriend with a 26-year-old man on Saturday night.

An argument ensued and the younger man was shot in his upper body. He died at the scene.

The gunman ran away but was caught by police and arrested.

He was expected to appear in the Protea Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    You get love triangles and then you get love Octagons (Zuma)

      I'm not a big Zuma fan myself but I fail to see what is the relevance of what you said about him to the article.

      Oh BOY! Taking a life for a G/F or anyone else is simply NOT WORTH stuffing up your own life! You should have just insisted she leave with the dog.... you life would have been much better off without the sleeze!

    He was so stupid how can you kill someone because of a woman,But anyway man becomes crazy when his woman cheats on him but he should have controlled his anger.As long as women go on and have sex with other men other than their husbands we will always read about these tragedies

      He obviously has no 'language skills' to 'talk' about the matter - just takes out a gun and shoots - how clever is that?? Now he has killed someone and messed up the rest of his life!!!

    A very sad ending to cheating, Be honest with your partner, tell him/her if you wants out of the relationship. Never good has ever come from cheating! To the killer you are not judge,jury & exucutioner, may you rot in jail,It could have been a misunderstanding. However, No partner,is worth to be killed,especially over a cheating girlfriend.

    Why are people so trigger happy these days. Besides ,if he had to shoot anyone,it should have been the woman

      marilyn.docherty.9 - 2013-01-06 15:34

      Why are you assuming the women is guilty? Perhaps she eas only TALKING to the man!!!!

      lebogangdk - 2013-01-06 20:31

      The woman could be anther man's shoulder tonight

  • nkhangwe.madzivh - 2013-01-06 13:35

    simple means you are not making her happy,so just walk away than to rot in jail

      frank.grootboom - 2013-01-06 18:00

      Its right that he should rot in jail but she is also partly to blame for this tragedy. Why was'nt she honest with her boyfriend if he did not make her happy,why run to the arms of another man before breaken it off with your current boyfriend. Why cheat,why??? All this could have been preventable its mostly her fault!!!

    It's not about not being satisfied by another person . It is in the genes for some people and no matter how stupid you punish yourself by trying to satisfy them , you can't change them . Ask grown ups !

  • Erna - 2013-01-06 17:38

    It's no wonder all the prisons are full - we have lots of volunteers!

  • rude.awakning - 2013-01-06 17:52

    the reoprt states that the gunman ''suspected'' that his girlfriend was having an affair with the deceased. It does not confirm such an affair! The bf could have just been a jealous fool who didnt want to listen to reason. The fact that he drew a firearm and discharged it for such a trivial matter speaks volumes of his blinding jealousy and insecurities. We are still to hear if firearm was licenced to him. the gf could have just been friends with the deceased... But even if she told the gunman she had found someone else, he had no business loosing his temper! He didnt 'own' her! Now i hope he pays for his deed and maybe he will get to find out what it is like being someones girlfriend............in jail!
