...She was plan­ning on dump­ing hus­band

Swazi Observer - - NATIONAL NEWS -

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.

Worry

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.
