Two men have been arrested in South Africa for allegedly beating a woman to death.
Reports state that a 42-year-old man and his cousin were nabbed by police after he and his cousin beat his wife to death.
It has been alleged that the ‘reason’ behind the beating was that the man caught his wife cheating.
Spokesperson for Limpopo police Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo stated that they arrested the duo for the brutal and deadly assault of the 40-year-old wife.
Mojapelo also stated that the man the wife allegedly cheated with was also beaten.
SowetanLIVE reported that the incident occurred in Tshiendeulu Thembaluvhilo village outside Thohoyandou and that Mojapelo stated the woman had succumbed to her injuries shortly after the horrific beating.
It was alleged that the man and his cousin were tracing the wife when they reportedly found her cheating with another man in a bush on Monday, 23 August. Mojapelo also stated that the duo severely assaulted the man, who eventually managed to escape.
The man who assaulted his wife reportedly took her home with him and called the police on Tuesday morning to inform them that she had died.
Upon arrival at the couple’s home, police found the woman’s body lying on the floor.
Gender-based violence is a touchy topic in South Africa. In a similar incident, News24 reported that a man from the North West appeared in court for allegedly beating his girlfriend to death with a sword before hiding her body under a bed. The 30-year-old man was arrested just before the weekend.
