Husband kills wife in Shoprite car park – after finding her ‘with another man’

This latest act of alleged 'gender-based violence' has infuriated political figures in Limpopo, after a 32-year-old woman was killed in a Shoprite car park.

Husband kills wife in Shoprite car park – after finding her ‘with another man’

Police in Polokwane have made an arrest in connection with a shocking case this week. The suspect is accused of shooting his own wife dead in the middle of a Shoprite parking lot, after discovering she was sitting in another man’s car.

Man shoots wife in Shoprite car park

The 34-year-old is set to be processed in court, after the ‘bullet-ridden body’ of his partner was found slumped inside the parked vehicle. It’s understood that a blazing argument took place when the spouses confronted each other, before the male discharged his firearm and hit his 32-year-old wife multiple times.

“Police in Polokwane arrested a suspect, 34, after he allegedly shot and killed his wife this afternoon, in the parking area of Shoprite, on the corner of Grobler and Landdross Mare streets. The police received a call about the incident at about 14:00 and rushed to the scene. On arrival, the body of a 32-year-old woman was found inside a motor vehicle.”

“The deceased, believed to be from Seshego Township, was together with a certain man inside the said vehicle when her husband arrived. An argument allegedly ensued and the husband aged 34, took out a firearm and shot the woman several times. She died instantly. The motive for the killing is unknown – but domestic violence cannot be ruled out.”

Another case of GBV suspected

SAPS won’t jump to any conclusions just yet, but the DA isn’t being so cautious in its approach. Desiree Van der Walt, the provincial chairperson of the DA’s Women’s Network, has expressed her ‘deep concerns’ over another alleged gender-based violence case. The MP insists that women in Limpopo are now living in fear.

“The Democratic Alliance Women’s Network is deeply concerned by what seems to be escalating levels of gender-based violence (GBV) and femicide cases in Limpopo recently. The continued prevalence of GBV in our communities is extremely worrying and continues to prove that women are not safe in this province” | Desiree Van der Walt

“Believe you me‚ the next four games I can’t see AmaZulu losing those four games‚” said McCarthy, as quoted by Sowetan.

“So CAF Champions League – we will be playing CAF Champions League [next season]‚ so that brings new challenges.

“With new challenges we can’t just expect to bring a whole new team in because the players that work for us have done their duty for the club. We now have to look and scout and see which three‚ four‚ five players we can bring in and make what we already have better.

“That’s how it works – it’s not that we’re going to make wholesome changes. We’re not that type of team that goes and recruit a new team for the new challenges.

“We work with what we have – for the players that got us there it will be a reward for their hard work. You can’t up and get rid of them.

“But there will be a few new faces that will come in and assist the good team that we already have so we can be ready and competitive for Caf Champions League.”
