A South African man identified as Njabulo Khomo has committed suicide after killing his kids because his lover left him.
According to Daily Sun SA, he had threatened to commit suicide after his baby mama left him, though he was calmed by his family.
On Wednesday, the body of his kids-Njabulo ,2, and Sibonelo,3, were found hanging from the ceiling of his rented apartment.
Speaking on the incident, his sister Sindi Mzulwini said he came to take the kids who were staying with her and lied that he was taking them k to Sangoma. She said what tore her heart apart was the amount and level of violence against the children.
Sindi said, “We spoke to him several times about how he had to accept that the baby mama had ended their relationship. It seemed as if he had listened.”
“They had nothing to do with the fight between him and their mum,” she said. “Even though it’s painful to lose him, it would have been better if he had only killed himself.”
“He lied and said he wanted to take them to a sangoma,” she said.
“When we discovered what had happened the next day, we realised he had planned it carefully.”
