Johannesburg - A man allegedly sjambokked his wife to death near Klipgat in the North West province, police said on Saturday.

Captain Pelonomi Makau said the man, aged between 50 and 60-years-old, handed himself over to police on Friday.

The incident took place in the village of Ikageng at 04:00  on Friday following an argument between the couple.

"When police arrived they found a sjambok and a pick axe handle next to the deceased. The suspect admitted to the police that he used both instruments to assault his wife," Makau said.

The man will appear in the Ga-rankuwa Magistrate's Court on Monday.

      @ Joha @ Julie. Do you include the population group that Kotze belong to?

    Instead of getting the noose he deserves, the vermin will end up in a five star state guesthouse at our expense.

    WTF? Barbaric savage! It boggles the mind how someone can do this to another human being! Whats the bet a LOT of alcohol was involved!

    I wonder what else can we use as correctional services because prisons don't have much fire coming with it,that's why more and more atrocities like this keep up.

      Maybe she didn't iron his shirt properly.

      Adam - 2012-02-11 20:28

      Ahhh ,what is it with you guys giving me a thimbs down ?!! It was just a kind reminder on how things really happen. Anyway, buggar you all, I still think he was insanely mad at her. It was just my honest opinion, not that I condone it. Dont you have any understanding of afrikaans anyway?

  • Lloyd Lucas - 2012-02-11 12:50

    Wtf! There is absolutely no justification for this. Bring back the death penalty!

    It does not take fool to start understanding what makes others inferior. Inferiority and equality are not bed-mates. In fact all mankind is born equal but by their own hand they make themselves unequal.

    Substance abuse is to blame for this act of savagery. I condemn those who introduced these dangerous substances to our country.

      Garth - 2012-02-11 14:15

      There is nothing in this report to substantiate that! How do you know? Were you there?

      PeggySven - 2012-02-11 14:49

      Vegi, you mean to say that the Black tribes of Africa had not even learned to brew an alcoholic beverage before the White man arrived? I think what ever it is you are smoking should be made illegal, lol.

      Trudy - 2012-02-11 16:43

      @ Peggy Sven. I am glad you are no longer living in South Africa. We do not need people like you here. @ Vegi. Get a grip on yourself. We need people who are part of the solution not the problem

      Sunshine - 2012-02-11 18:08

      Substance abuse? Have you been smoking sjamboks again Vegi?

  • Vegi - 2012-02-11 13:12

    This beast and Johan Kotze should be made to suffer for the women they killed.

      Tuner - 2012-02-11 15:34

      Just to get your facts right, the latter did not kill a woman. You seem to have a problem with that.

  • Pixie86 - 2012-02-11 13:41

    i never knew 'sjambokked' was an actual verb

  • tlegodu - 2012-02-11 13:44
