A Man Took His Own Life After Murdering His Girlfriend And Her Colleague In South Africa

A man shot and killed two female teachers identified as Brenda Kgatitsoe and Vumile Mkhize in Ga-Rankuwa Zone 1, near Pretoria, South Africa.

The suspect who is a boyfriend to one of the deceased ladies shot himself dead in the room after killing them at their rented residence.

Gauteng education department spokesperson, Steve Mabona said:

“According to our information, the teachers, aged 26 and 27, were shot dead, allegedly by the partner of one of the teachers, at about 3pm on Monday, March 21.”

Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi said:

“We are devastated at this gruesome act of criminality that has taken the lives of two of our youngest and brightest educator.

The incident took place just a few weeks shy of their first anniversary of being employed at the Lekgalong Primary School in the township north of Tshwane.

The victim allegedly informed her colleagues at the school where she is teaching that the man and some of her family relatives wanted to force her into an arranged marriage which she did not want nor consent to.

A colleague said:

“I saw him parked outside the gate and went there to watch him until he decided to drive off. In the end, I advised her to go to the police and get a protection order against him. She came back only to say police could do nothing as he had gone back to KZN. It’s so sad what happened to these two young ladies. They had both just bought their cars and were really excited to be here.”
