...She was planning on dumping husband
GCINILE Ceb’sile Mhlanga (27) was allegedly murdered by her husband Muzi Khumalo after he discovered that she was planning to dump him.
The couple lived in Manzini as the husband was employed in a privately owned company contracted to Swaziland Electricity Company (SEC), where he was a driver.
The gruesome murder incident occurred at a Khumalo homestead at Estandini, an area near Mehlwabovu between Hlatikulu and Nkwene.
It is said the two were already experiencing problems in their marriage and such misunderstanding was fuelled after the husband learned that she was already planning to dump him and he never wanted to accept that and resolved to kill her.
They were married through Swazi Law and Custom last year. It was around July this year when the couple arrived at the homestead from Manzini in a hired vehicle which dropped them off and went back the same day.
It is believed that the woman was of the view that they were going to fetch some of her belongings and it never dawned to her that she was to be like a lamb that was to be sacrificed, with her only sin being that she was planning to dump her husband.
Those close to the matter said the woman’s first worry was when her husband advised the driver of the car he had hired to go back.
It is said she enquired as to why was the car being allowed to leave as she was of the idea that they had only come to fetch her belongings. It is said her husband told her not to worry as they were to go back to Manzini in the late hours.
The two had arrived in the morning hours, said a source from the area. The woman then decided to get into the house where she took a nap with the hope that they would go back late in the day as per her husband’s promise when in actual fact he had another plan.
