Family members were spitting mad, half of them speaking all at once, as they accused Makhalemele-Maseko, 26, of being a bad woman and a pathetic liar.
The family claimed they found empty wardrobes with the 30-year-old man's clothes missing when they went to his plush home to collect his belongings during the week. They believe Makhalemele-Maseko sent someone to collect them.
The lawyer student dropout and a supply chain student allegedly stabbed her husband to death early on Saturday last week.
According to police sources close to the case, it is alleged that the wife had gone out with friends for the first time since she had her second child four months ago.
The sources allege that when she arrived home in the early hours of the morning with a friend, a fight ensued after the husband, who was at home sleeping, told them to keep it down because they were making a noise.
According to police sources, the husband started assaulting his wife and her friend who ran outside to get help from the security guards.
"When the friend and security guards came back, they found that Itumeleng had already stabbed him. Itumeleng fled the scene and handed herself over to the police in the company of her lawyer two days later," said the source.
However, Maseko's family poured cold water on the friend's version of events saying Makhalemele-Maseko stabbed her husband while he was sleeping and defenceless.
They said they found him lying on the bed in his underwear with a stab wound to the chest next to their little baby.
