Man murdered live in girlfriend and their 8 month old baby; then hanged himself

Themba Moyo lost his job; it is not clear what job it was; but he managed to get another job as a farm hand; the new job entailed looking after the cattle and other farm activities; it also came with free boarding; in a one roomed house.

Moyo shared this one room in Davhana; at Vuwani in Limpopo; with his live in girlfriend; Livhuwabi Khobo; and their eight month old son; Nkosinathi. It was not easy for Khobo's family to get in touch with her because her phone was broken.

Moyo's employer; Winnie Muthambi; said when he asked her for a job; she was happy to offer it to him with boarding for free; she had never heard about any quarrel between them as a couple.

Thomas Rambuwani; had last seen him when they were building a structure within the farm; he seemed in high spirits and when he left he took a pick axe and a shovel. Rambuwani thought nothing of it.

Moyo was last seen heading to a local grave yard with a pick axe and the shovel. When neighbours noticed that they had not seen Khobo and the baby since Saturday; they went knocking on ther one roomed house.

When they opened the door; they were met with Moyo's body hanging from the rafters; this is when they went searching for Khobo and her baby boy.

It was easy for them to follow the trail; because they had seen Moyo heading to the grave site; carrying a pick axe and shovel. A quick survey of the site; led them to a shallow grave; where Moyo had buried his girlfriend and their baby.

Khobo's wrists were tied tightly with a rope; and had deep wounds on them; she had been bludgeoned to death; the baby also had a huge gaping wound on the head.

No one in Khobo's family knows what led Moyo to take this decision; but they are worried about Khobo's other 5 children; who now have no mother.

The 5 children live at her elderly parents' home. Khobo's sister; Ndivhu said her parents are still in disbelief; they are pensioners; old and sickly; she does not know how this is going to affect their health.
