Limpopo Man Goes on a Rampage Shooting Dead his Cop Wife and Alleged Two Lovers
A Limpopo man went on the rampage killing his wife, who is a police officer, and her alleged two lovers on Saturday night in Ga-Kuranta village under Kgoshi Modjadji.
It’s alleged that the man shot and killed his wife, Detective Constable Mahlatse Precious Machubeni, 32, who was outside her residence standing next to a friend’s motor vehicle, at about 23h40.
He also allegedly killed two men on the same night, because he suspected they were having an affair with his wife.
Police spokesperson Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said that the suspect approached and allegedly fired several shots at his wife and friend. They both died instantly.
The man fled the scene, using the male victim’s white Ford Ranger motor vehicle.
However, along the way, the man reportedly found another 36-year-old male victim, sitting inside a BMW vehicle, and fatally shot him, apparently on suspicion that he was in love with his wife.
The victim’s female companion was also shot but was taken to the hospital for medical treatment.
Mojapelo said the man, aged 34, handed himself over to the cops, together with his licensed firearm and the hijacked motor vehicle.
He was placed in police custody.
The man will appear in the Bolobedu Magistrate’s Court on Tuesday, facing three counts of murder, one count of attempted murder and car hijacking.
