Man shot wife in cemetery

FIGHTING the scourge of gender based violence must never stop until those responsible for the innocent attacks on vulnerable women and children are arrested and sent to prison.

This is the strong message from the South African Police Service following the arrest of a 55-year-old murder suspect on Sunday, 26 July.

According to police spokesperson Captain Gerda Swart, the suspect was arrested for the murder of his estranged wife while she was attending a funeral in Matanzima Cemetery in KwaNobuhle.

“It is alleged that the victim (in her fifties) was at the cemetery when she was approached by the suspect who fired a shot, wounding her.

“The victim was rushed to a local hospital for medical treatment, but later succumbed to her injuries,” said Captain Swart.

The suspect was arrested on the scene and the firearm seized. The firearm will be sent to ballistics for analysis. The suspect appeared in the KwaNobuhle magistrates’ court on Tuesday, 28 July 2020 on a charge of murder.
