The deceased was said to have felt betrayed and decided to end his life at his mother-in-law’s homestead.
Gwesela said they are still trying to come to terms with the unusual incident, as Mlauzi’s actions shocked the entire community.
He described the deceased as a very hard-working man, who worked tirelessly as a gold panner to provide for his family and his in-laws.
The village leader also disclosed that he is yet to meet the woman’s family, so that a cleansing ceremony can be conducted, as they fear that the incident could bring bad omen to the village.
“I am meeting with the family next week so that we conduct a cleansing ceremony to help appease Mlauzi’s spirit because if that is not done, we might have problems,” he said.
