Limpopo Police Sergeant guns down his wife then turns gun on himself

It has happened again in a space of 5 days; another man has shot his wife to death then turned the gun on himself in a murder suicide that took place near Dennilton; in Limpopo.

The police sergeant had followed his wife who was also a police constable; to her mother's house and gunned her down; she died at the scene of the incident.

Soon after that; the man shot himself and they were both pronounced dead at the scene of the incident. The couple lived together as husband and wife in Tweefontein; where they allegedly also worked.

The spokesperson for Independent Policing Investigative Directorate (IPID); Grace Langa; said the Directorate was investigating why the Tweefontein police station failed to report the murder suicide directly to them.

This followed a pathologist refusing to conduct a post moterm on both bodies without documentation from the IPID. Langa said the incident happened in Wednesday 29 December; but they only heard about it through the pathology laboratory a day later.

Langa told a local newspaper that; It is not known what the motive behind the killing was. IPID will open a Section 33; case against the Tweefontein police station; for failing to report the incident as specified by the IPID Act.

Langa said; it was not clear why the Tweefontein police station failed to inform IPID; as this is a matter that needs to be dealt with; by IPID; the station however; did accept responsibility for the omission.

This murder follows three days after a man gunned down his wife in their home and took off in his BMW. Vivi Moropane (31); from Namakgale in Phalaborwa; Limpopo; was robbed of her young life; when she was allegedly shot by her husband on Sunday.

Before that; Azwidowi Enoch Ndou (52) from Jimmy Jones in Limpopo; shot and killed 7 of his relatives on Christmas day in a dispute over the family home.
