NOMVULA Mlangeni is grieving the death of her sister.
But what makes her more heart-broken is to see her traumatised eight-year-old nephew holding on to a necklace his mother bought for him a few hours before her husband gunned her down.
Her 16-year-old niece has been taken for counselling.
Yesterday Mlangeni, of Vosloorus in Ekurhuleni, told how her brother-in-law came home on Friday night and found his wife, Mangaka Sina Khumalo, not at home.
His children told him she had gone to see a friend who lived a few houses away.
"When he got there my sister was not there," Mlangeni said. "He asked my sister's friend where she was. But while they were still talking my sister showed up.
"He demanded to know where she had been and an argument started."
She said the mother of two told her husband they should go home and sort out their differences.
They left in his car.
"He got out of the car and the next thing a gunshot was heard. Another shot followed and then another. She was shot five times and died on the scene," Mlangeni said with tears in her eyes.
She said he left his dead wife on the street and went home.
"When he got home he threw the gun on the floor in the children's bedroom and told them to 'go and see your dead mother. I have killed her'.
"The children ran out of the house and found Khumalo's body in a pool of blood. What kind of a father does that to his own children?" Mlangeni asked.
She said her brother in law disappeared into the night, until he turned himself in at the Vosloorus police station on Tuesday.
Police spokesperson Captain Ephraim Shezi confirmed that a man was arrested on Tuesday and appeared in the Boksburg magistrate's court the following day.
Khumalo will be buried tomorrow at South Park Cemetery in Ekurhuleni. The service will be held at the Eastfield Family Christian Church from 9.30am.
