A man has hanged his two children and himself after his wife packed out of their home.
According to Daily Sun, family members had tried to prevail on the distraught father, Njabulo Khomo when he threatened to kill himself due to his wife’s abandonment.
But their advice came to naught when Khomo did the unimaginable last Wednesday.
On Wednesday he killed himself and his two kids!
Njabulo, his daughter Thando, 2 years, and son Sibonelo, 3 years, were found hanging from the ceiling of his rented house.
It happened in Mophela Village near Hammarsdale in eThekwini of South Africa.
Njabulo’s sister Sindi Mzulwini, 34, said: “We spoke to him several times about how he had to accept that the baby mama had ended their relationship. It seemed as if he had listened.”
Sindi’s brother had told them he wanted to die because the baby mama had moved on.
She said what tore her heart apart was the amount and level of violence against the children.
“They had nothing to do with the fight between him and their mum,” she said.
“Even though it’s painful to lose him, it would have been better if he had only killed himself.”
She said the kids were staying with her until their father asked for them.
“He lied and said he wanted to take them to a sangoma,” she said.
“When we discovered what had happened the next day, we realised he had planned it carefully.”
