THE city of Nelspruit is still in shock after a farmer who once owned the only restaurant in the city that sold traditional food died after allegedly committing suicide on Wednesday night.
Vuledzani Tshivhasa, a former doctor at Mapulaneng Hospital, allegedly had an argument with his wife and left homein West Acres at about 10pm.
His wife told police that after the argument Tshivhasa left the house, only to be found hanging from a tree the following morning.
"I can confirm the death and the fact that an inquest case has been opened," said Nelspruit acting police spokesperson Captain Charles Bezuindenhout yesterday.
No further details were immediately available.
Tshivhasa used to own a restaurant that sold "special" food at the Promenade Centre in Nelspruit, but had sold the eatery to another businessman.
He was originally from Sibasa near Thohoyandou in Limpopo.
Tshivhasa was dedicated to farming where he specialised in buying and selling goats, sheep, pigs as well as cattle. His farm was in the Barberton area.
"This was the only man who brought traditional food to this town. We ate intestines, tripe and livers from his restaurant and we are very shocked that he had to die this way," said one loyalcustomer Mary Khumalo.
