’Til Death Do Us…

In South Africa a polygamist businessman has been convicted of the murder of his pregnant wife and the attempted murder of his second wife.

“A polygamist businessman was convicted by the [South Africa’s] Vereeniging Circuit Court for the murder of his pregnant wife and attempted murder of his second wife, the Sowetan reported on Thursday. Jabulani Ndlovu shot and killed Phindile Dlamini in June last year. She was seven months pregnant at the time. Fourteen days later he shot and wounded his second wife Tholakele Ngubane while they were having sex. Ndlovu’s employee, Mzwenduku Ngubane was found guilty of being an accessory to murder after he helped his boss dispose of Dlamini’s body and kept quiet about the killing. ‘After Dlamini was killed you failed to report the matter to the police. Alternatively you also failed to take the stand during the trial and explain why you helped Ndlovu to dispose of Dlamini’s body,’ Judge Margaret Victor was quoted as saying.”
