Celebrations were in order at the Malamulele and Bolobedu magistrate's courts in the Mopani region of Limpopo yesterday.

This was after the two courts decided to remand the two men who had allegedly killed their wives at the weekend.

The two, David Hasani of Gandlanani Mavambe, outside Malamulele, and Valley Ngobeni, 24, from Relela village, outside Tzaneen, were not asked to plead when they appeared and were remanded.


Hasani and Ngobeni will both appear in the two different courts again on February 22.

The two men were arrested on Friday and Saturday after they had allegedly killed their spouses.

Ngobeni allegedly stabbed his wife, Dikeledi Masekane, 21, to death.

He later turned himself in to the police at Relela and drove with them to the house to show them the body.


Hasani, meanwhile, allegedly accused his wife, Hloniphani Violet Mboweni, 23, of using their child support grant to buy clothes instead of showing him the money first.

Inspector Alson Mapindani said Hasani had just returned home from a drinking spree when an argument erupted between him and his wife.

"During the argument Hasani allegedly took a pick handle with which he repeatedly hit his wife in the head until she died.

"Seeing that his wife was dead, he allegedly went into the bedroom and found their two-year-old son, Khulani, whom he also hit to death with the same pick handle."
