NOT my mother!
A man from Marula in Matabeleland South could not accept seeing his mother being poked by another man and knifed him to death after seeing him sneaking into her bedroom hut several times.
The incident which left villagers in a state of shock happened last week on Tuesday.
A police source said Behaviour Moyo (25) always accused his mother Thandiwe Moyo of having a sexual affair with Mehluli Sibanda. But it seems his accusations fell on deaf ears.
Despite that Thandiwe never stopped Mehluli from sneaking into her bedroom hut during the night. As a result last Tuesday, Behaviour confronted Mehluli and accused him of disrespecting his family.
But Mehluli did not take kindly to the accusations, as a result an argument ensued between the two. At the height of it, Behaviour allegedly drew an Okapi knife from his pocket and stabbed Mehluli.
“He stabbed him twice on the chest and once on the head. Mehluli bled profusely and died while he was being rushed to a hospital,” said the police source.
A family source said after Behaviour killed Mehluli, he sent his sisters a WhatsApp message.
“He sent us a text message saying I have killed that dog that was sleeping with our mother. If you go along the railway line you will find his lifeless body,” said the police source.
One of the villagers reported the matter to the police leading to Behaviour’s arrest.
Matabeleland South police spokesperson Philisani Ndebele confirmed the incident. “We arrested a man who is suspected to have stabbed his mother’s boyfriend to death and is expected to appear in court soon,” said Ndebele.
