Man kills himself and his two kids

Caught wife in bed with another man

A JEALOUS husband set alight his two children and himself, after allegedly finding his wife in bed with another man.

On Saturday, William Moalosi of Kopela village in North West locked himself and his two sons, Okaeng, 11, and Kagiso, 4, in their house, doused it with petrol and then set it alight.

Shocked neighbours rushed to the scene to put out the fire using water and sand before dragging Moalosi, 40, and his children out.

The three were immediately taken to a nearby clinic where Kagiso died on arrival.

The father and his elder son Okaeng died at the Mahikeng Provincial Hospital on Sunday.

Moalosi was married to Ineeleng Moalosi in 2010 and they were both working in Johannesburg.

The family stayed in a rented back-room in Diepsloot and usually visited their home in Kopela at month end.

Last Saturday Moalosi left with his children for their home in Kopela - leaving his wife behind.

Moalosi's childhood friend Stopper Riet told Sowetan that the deceased had called him last Wednesday telling him that he was leaving his wife because he had caught her in bed with another man.

"He called and said to me 'I am leaving Ineeleng for good, if you need more information speak to her, she will tell you everything'."

Riet said he knew his friend had problems in his marriage but did not suspect that he was going to kill himself and the children.

According to him, the couple went through marriage counselling and church prayers but none of them helped.

Moalosi's sister, Lydia Moalosi, could not believe what had happened. "He was my only brother, he was strict but very sweet and outspoken, I don't know what led him to do such a horrible thing, it's not like him," she said.

A sad great-grandfather of the children, Jonas Mokotedi, could not hold back his tears.

"I raised these children like my own. It is sad that they are now gone."

Mokotedi said he was with his great-grandson when he died.

"Before he died in hospital, he asked me to give him water and told me to take care of his cattle.

"He then prayed to God to save him, but a little later he died."

North West police spokesman Brigadier Thulani Ngubane said they have opened three inquest dockets.

@Mommac C...True that. Family values play a major roll in shaping up whom we become later in life. It is that "God" respecting family that you are taught to respect human life. For you to want or not to should have some complex back ground. There is a stage early in life that you decisions are more inclined to what you see around than what you want. Young people make some mistakes, not because they want but because they happen to be entangled into those things one way or the other. I would like to believe that we only become in charge of our actions at some intrinsic stage again as we develop. That development stage is the one that is sophisticated and how best can we deal with it?

Cheating- Both men and women do it and cheating has been with us from time immemorial and is here to stay. There are women and men whose strenght of resisting cheating their spouse is a second nature. Not every man or woman cheats. As much as we always blame men for cheating, men are not cheating with other men excerpt for people in the same sex relationship and those who have taste for both men and women( which is just a few in numbers),men cheat with other women and most women will know that the person they are sharing the bed with has a good relationship or he is married. This phenomenon is not only about starvation or celebrity is about many things and we cannot really ground it to one or two. As much as the society hates it is embedded in our genes, it is reflect the way we used to do things in the stone age or longer than that. We have modernised our behaviour but the traits will always show. eg it has been proven scientifically that men still move their heads around, wether they are married or not wether they are happily married or happily in their relationship or not, when an ovulating woman passesby, that is natural. They might not know that they are doing that, but it is natural. Woment too will unknowingly react differently when ovulating in front of men. Some tell tale signs are involuntarily eg their waist become much smaller and some areas become exaggerated, this remind me of the animal kingdom when it is time for mating. Having said that we humans set ethicall and moral rules to guide our behaviour, we have developed discipline in different ways to fend off promiscuoity and anarchy, but some of us will remain weaker than others and some of us will prefare such behaviour, while others will be drawn to such behaviour because of wanting to be loved , exploitation, sex addiction and socialization. Yet we cannot rule out choice.

Palsah: I Agree. "If married _stay truthful to your spouse". If you no longer get on, don't cheat on her. Come clean, end the relationship and move on. There is absolutely no acceptible reason for cheating. The same "ethic" applies to any relationship, whether marriage or simply "being an item".

As for Religion, it keeps me going when the roda gets tough and I believe Im what i am because of those values enshrined in the bible
