Sanele Cele, a 30-year-old man from KwaMachi in Harding, died untimely, allegedly at the hands of his fiancée, in a twisted tale of love turned fatal. According to sources, the fatal incident happened just hours after the ill-fated couple had a heated argument, signaling a dark turn in what was supposed to be a happy marriage.
Sanele’s family received the heartbreaking news via an early-morning phone call from their father, who urged his older brother, Njabulo, to rush to the hospital. What awaited him was a grim reality: Sanele had died as a result of a fatal stab wound, a tragedy that has left the family in shock and sorrow.
Njabulo expressed the family’s anguish in an interview with ZiMoja, demanding justice for their fallen brother. “How will she deal with us as a family after what she did to our brother?” “How can she kill her child’s father, especially in his sleep?” he asked, emphasizing the family’s profound sense of betrayal.
Sihle, Sanele’s sister, shed light on the turbulent dynamics of the ill-fated relationship.
Despite the fact that he had paid lobola for his fiancée in March, the family noticed a troubling shift in the couple’s dynamics. He said, “She was very manipulative and did not want him to be close to us.” The family, which initially welcomed her into their fold, is now confronted with the stark reality that they may have gained an alleged murderer rather than a sister.
The bereaved family emphasized the tragedy’s devastating impact on the couple’s child, who is now separated from both parents.
Njabulo claimed a premeditated plan, citing Sanele’s alleged intoxication on the day of the incident as evidence. “She planned it because we were told Sanele was inebriated on the day of the incident.” We all know Sanele dislikes fighting, especially when he’s drunk. “He’ll just sleep,” he said.
KZN SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Robert Netshiunda confirmed the incident and stated that KwaMakhutha police are investigating the murder case. A 24-year-old woman is scheduled to appear in court on a murder charge.
The courtroom is set to serve as a stage for justice, with the family hoping to see their makoti face the consequences of her alleged actions.
