Man eats the heart of his ex-girlfriend's new lover with knife and fork

They say three's a crowd; Nomonde Soloshe found that out the hard way when her former boyfriend savagely attacked her current lover of four years at his home in Malunga Park, Gugulethu on Tuesday night.

Mbuyiselo Manona was stabbed on the left side of his chest, in his neck and had a bite mark on the right side of his face.

Neighbours were alerted to this vicious attack by Manona's tenant who rented a room at the back of his house. They witnessed the mutilation by peeping through windows.

"When we got there the man kept muttering 'I am the king' and declaring his undying love for the woman. He then cut the heart out and ate it before the police came and took him away," a witness said.

"On the scene they found a suspect, a Zimbabwean national, busy eating the heart of a human with a knife and fork," police spokesman Frederick van Wyk told the Cape Times said.

The woman at the centre of the love triangle told police that her former lover had visited the house where she was living with her current partner and they had chatted together before he gave her money to buy liquor and she left.

When she returned she found her partner, 62-year-old Mbuyiselo Manona, had been stabbed, Van Wyk said.

Neighbours alerted by the commotion said they had peered through the house windows to see the man cutting out Manona's heart and eating it.

"The whole situation was crazy. We were shouting at him to stop, but he did not listen," one neighbour said.

"Even when the police got here... the guys were scared to go in. They had to call for back-up.

"You can't really blame them - how do you go into a room with someone dripping another person's blood out of his mouth?"

Western Cape deputy police commissioner Sharon Jephta said the motive for the murder was "definitely a love triangle".

Clinical psychologist Ian Meyer described the act of removing Manona's heart as a "primitive symbol of triumph." Such cannibalism does exist but is uncommon in South Africa

The neighbours informed the police that Soloshe's former boyfriend had been hired recently to install aluminium windows at the house.

According to TimesLive this is not the first time that Soloshe has been embroiled in a fatal love triangle. Her husband, wealthy Cape Town businessman Bhekizulu Tshabalala, was murdered by her alleged lover, Xolani Hobongwana, in 1996.

You are so into denial OL it makes the mind boggles. You are provided with the history of the woman and yet you have the nerve to divert the issue.

Of-Ochre, and exactly how does her history justify the killing of a man?

Jun 12, 2014 1:15 | 1 replies


OL are you trying at going in circles with me cause I'm not gonna take the bait. When you start by saying that "... again a woman is blamed for a man's action.", there you have already spinned it by "angelising" the "woman" when common sense should prevail that if we take this particular "woman" out of the equation, those men would not have crossed ways.

Of -ochre, so if we take all Mini Coopers out of the equation, Jub-Jub would not have killed any children. If we take that black domestic worker out of the equation, that white dude would not have assaulted a woman. If we take that dude in the park out of the equation, the Waterkloof 4 would never have killed anyone. If we take Reeva out of the equation, OP would never have killed her, etc, etc. And you say I am in denial? You're proving my point here. You have sympathy for a murderer. He couldn't handle to be cheated on, and somehow that makes it okay for him to kill another man? See why I say black people themselves make black life cheap.

Your denialism is glistening every hour by you angelising the woman in question go on make my day.

Of-Ochre, I don't know if the woman is an angel or a devil. What I do know is that SHE did not murder anyone. You're making black life cheaper & cheaper by the second, dude, just trying to find reasons why it is okay for one man to kill another.

Of Ocre - What is to guarantee these guys wouldn't have crossed paths? Obviously the ex is completely tossed in the head. He could have eaten the poor guy's heart because he bought the car he wanted. They were broken up for 4 years! It isn't like she was cheating on the ex with the current boyfriend

Of-ochre, yeah, the truth is normally a WOW moment.

The truth that white kids would kill their parents who do not approve of who their kids go out with whom, and that makes white parents' lives very cheap and that is the truth!

Jun 12, 2014 1:36 | 1 replies


Of-ochre, the truth is that white kids may do that, yes, but do you see any white people having sympathy for such killers? THAT is the difference, dude. White people comdemn such actions in the strongest possible way, while black people like you try to find excuses for the murderer's behaviour.

Ag Oldlady my best friend, why you always defend women even when it's not necessary?This woman is a number one suspect.

Ponko, how can the woman be no1 suspect if witnesses saw the man cut out the heart?

Jun 12, 2014 1:16 | 1 replies


She directed him to do that!That's why I'm saying she is a suspect, use your brain to think.

Jun 12, 2014 1:42 | 1 replies


Ponko, I've read the article again, and nowhere does it say she asked him to kill the other guy. Neither did the police arrest her as a suspect, so I don't understand where you get that from.

Jun 12, 2014 2:1 | 1 replies


Ponko, this woman did not even cheat on the murderer. He was already her EX at this stage.

Jun 12, 2014 2:2 | 0 replies


Geez, Plonko! You think men kill and eat other men over ugly assed chicks? She must be a yummy mummy for her to have this kind of track record with men. I also can't see how she is to blame for this. People move on from relationships every day. These men must grow the hell up already
