An anniversary celebration ended in tragedy after a Gauteng man, Prince Khumalo, 39 allegedly stabbed his wife 17 times in what South Africans are calling a ‘murder most foul’.

According to the Police,The mother of two was found dead with multiple stab wounds. The husband to the deceased claims his late wife killed herself after an argument.

A family friend alleges the couple had a falling out after their trip to Durban to celebrate their 7 year anniversary,They had a fight and a day later the victim Lindiwe Sibiya 39 was found dead.

According to iharare.com, Sibiya’s friend, Thuli Mkhwanazi, said the couple were supposed to drop off their two children, aged three and seven, with her uncle in Rietz in the Free State. She was adamant that Khumalo murdered her friend and said it was impossible Sibiya could have stabbed herself 17 times.

“When they were turning back after their fight, she called her uncle, crying, at about 9pm, saying she no longer wanted to be married to Khumalo. The call was cut off, and when her uncle tried to call back, her phone was off.

“He then received a call late on Saturday afternoon that she was found dead, after being stabbed 17 times, and the man (Khumalo) claimed she committed suicide,” Mkhwanazi said.

She said the couple’s relationship “was never a honeymoon”. “He was abusive. He cheated on her and would disappear for the weekend.”

She said Sibiya had just moved from Heidelberg in Gauteng to join him in Lephalale, where they both worked for Eskom.

She disputed that her friend would commit suicide. “She was full of life and loved her children.”

Sibiya’s uncle, Raymond Shabalala, confirmed that he received a phone call from her to say her marriage was over. A few hours later, he received a call from the police to say the young woman, who he had raised as his own daughter, had been found dead in a pool of blood.

“When I walked into the house it looked like a cow had been slaughtered. There was blood everywhere.

“When I saw him at the police station I asked him why he killed my daughter. But he just looked at me.”

Warrant Officer Frans Mokoena confirmed that a case of murder was being investigated against Khumalo.

He said Khumalo claimed that after the couple had a fight, he locked Sibiya in the house and drove to Joburg, where he dropped off their children with relatives.

When he returned, Khumalo claimed, he found his wife stabbed to death. Mokoena said there was no sign of a break-in at the house.

After appearing in court, Khumalo was released on R5000 bail, Mokoena said, adding that no previous cases of domestic violence had been opened against him.

  1. that’s south Africa for you, murder cases is never treated serious. just imagine such horrible murder and he was granted bail… the story alone is scary and you can actually see the truth right there… RIP woman.

  2. This guy ended his wife’s life and expects to live again. I’m one of the death penalty advocates, I mean an eye for an eye. This senseless husband might as well ends his life too. Whom do you think will take care of your children for you?. The worst offense your wife might have committed is an adultery. Even if you had caught her on bed with another man, still that has not given you right to take the life of your children’s mother. This guy, you have made the foolish decision of your life. If the court system frees you, do you think your children will ever forgive you if they learn in future that you killed their mother.

  3. IT MAY NOT BE ORDINARY, BECAUSE MARRIAGE IS A VERY DANGEROUS GAME ,

    PEOPLE FORGET THAT THE PERSON YOU WANT TO MARRY MAY HAVE A SECRET GIRLFRIENDS OR BOYFRIENDS

    WHO MAY BE JEALOUS OF YOUR MARRIAGE IN SECRET AND THEY WOULD USE THIS VOODDOO TO HYPNOTISE YOU TO KILL EACH OTHER

    OR THIS MAN MIGHT BE PART OF SECRET CULTS WHO OTHER HIM TO KILL, PEOPLE DO ALL SORT OF THINGS BEHIND CLOSED DOOR.

    MANY PEOPLE THINK YOU WERE BORN TO THIS EARTH ONLY TO JUST GET MARRIED AND HAVE KIDS , NO, IT IS NOT, YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GET MARRIED IF YOU DO NOT WANT TO MARRY,

    YOU CAN DO ALL THOSE THING WITHOUT GETTING MARRIED AND YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HOLD DOWN YOUR LIFE FOR SOMEONE IN THE NAME OF MARRIAGE

    PEOPLE FEEL BORED AFTER SOME YEARS OF MARRIAGE, SO, THEY WANT THEIR FREEDOM BACK.
    THIS IS ONE OF THOSE REASONS THAT MAKE MARRIAGE DIES.

    WHEN YOU STARTED FEELING BORED THEN ONE OF YOU WANT TO RUN AWAY AND ANOTHER WANT TO HOLD DOWN THE MARRIAGE.

    THEN THEY GO FOR KITCHEN KNIFE BECAUSE THEY DO NOT WANT TO SET YOU FREE AGAIN.

    MARRIAGE IS LIKE A SLAVERY. I THNK MY HEAD THAT I AM NOT UNDER ANY SHIHOLE.
