Sisters beat Eastern Cape man to death

2012-10-15 16:05

Johannesburg - Two women have been arrested for beating a man to death in Ncgobo, in the Eastern Cape, Mthatha police said on Monday.

"The man went to his girlfriend's house on Sunday night and started arguing with her and then assaulted her," said Lieutenant Colonel Mzukisi Fatyela.

"Together with her sister, they hit him back with everything they could find. They beat him with sticks, kicked him and even threw paraffin over him."

By the time neighbours called the police, the 40-year-old man was dead.

The sisters, aged 34 and 39, were expected to appear in the Ngcobo Magistrate's Court on Monday.

    I guess it's to late to tell him that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned. And scorning two sisters seems to be a definite path to a permanent sleep.

      Which is exactly right, men who beat women forget one thing: Their mothers are also women...

    Tjo. He made a grave mistake by hitting his girlfriend.

      emmakajee - 2012-10-15 20:28

      Lol! Grave indeed! A deep, quick one too ;)

  • Lyndatjie - 2012-10-15 16:55

    You go girls! If he lifted his hands up to you - it was self-defence.... (now hide the weapons and act contrite, but remember - that animal will NEVER hit another woman again)

  • teresa.villarini - 2012-10-15 16:58

    Ag shame! Feel no pitty for him! After being the beater he is now the beaten! Serves you right !

  • Leonard Eric Abdol - 2012-10-15 17:00

    I salute those two women, just hope other brave 'men' take note.

    Good example. He hit the lady with the wrong words and a wrong organ. If he applied himself correctly, he could not have ended alone on a single bed in a mortuary. It could have been a jolly good day for all involved. Could have given him a free lesson, but what value is it now to a corpse? If they were my sisters, I could possibly sell my one cow and use the mula to defend them. The dead one could easily have been the lady.

    You strike a woman, you strike a rock.

  • Andile Zide - 2012-10-15 17:13

  • mknnko003 - 2012-10-15 17:22

    I don't know what to say....

  • ndlovuvincent - 2012-10-15 17:40

    Condolences to the family of the deceased.So long as two ladies were acting in self defence,well done.We african men must change our thinking way that women do not have rights and and they are less important.Let us give them respect they deserve.It seems to me that this man has been troublesome for more than occassion.The decision to beat shows that u have been overpowered mentally and resort to physical fight.Unfortunately he got what he ordered as a doctor.

      ester.venter.3 - 2012-10-15 18:01

      My man, when a man appreciate and respect a woman you will life a long and happy life with respect from your peers. I respect you for this statement! Well said*

      siphom.mnguni - 2012-10-15 18:22

      @ndlovuvincent:)I wish I was allowed to give you 1million thumbs up. You've said it in a mouthful. I abhor violence no matter how hard you disagree with a person. This thing of turning our women into punching-bags must cease to exist. Period! Condolences to his family.

  • Sedeshan Naidoo - 2012-10-15 17:44
