A jealous father took out his two kids who he killed, after he caught their mother having sex with another man during a video call with her.
It was gathered that the horrific family murder incident happened on Saturday, at Ngaleng village outside Mankweng, Limpopo in South Africa.
The kids identified as Anna (8) and Mary (5) who were killed by their father after he caught their mother having sex with another man, had visited him as they were on school holidays. It was gathered that 38-year-old Samuel Kgatle hanged his two children, before hanging himself.
The deceased’s younger sister Josephina Kgatle (27) who said they are still shocked that his brother killed his daughters and himself, told newsmen;
“He called us with his phone and complained that the mother of his girls is making him a fool, she brought the girls over for school holidays so that she can enjoy herself with another man. He continued saying that he saw her enjoying herself with another man inside a house.”
“Afterwards around 8pm he called us again that he killed his kids and we should come and see them. We didn’t believe him, we rushed to his house and indeed when we entered the house they were hanging on the roof. He called us again around 3am this morning and said he is killing himself”.
Police spokesperson, Colonel Moatshe Ngoepe confirmed that they have opened cases of two counts of murder and inquest for further investigation.
“We encourage community members to seek assistance when they encounter any social related problems rather than resorting to killing”, Ngoepe said.
Also speaking on the incident, the father of late Samuel Ngoako Kgatle (62), said he was saddened by his son’s devastating act.
“I’m so sad and very sorry on his behalf. He was an open person and I’m not surprised he called his younger before killing his children. I can’t even tell you what got into him because he doesn’t drink alcohol or smoke. So I can’t say he was under the influence”, said the devastated madala.
