Four children hanged by their father in South Africa

212

A jilted dad hanged his four kids in their school uniforms after his wife served him divorce papers, a court has heard.

Sibusiso Mpungose, 44, allegedly waited until wife Xolisile, 42, left for work before ordering a string of taxis to pick his kids up from a nearby school.

He then took Kuhlekonke, 4, daughter Khwezi, 6, and son Sphesihile, 10, back to the marital home in Durban, South Africa, before ordering Sphesihile to leave and buy sweets.

He then reportedly strung up the two youngest kids with their school belts before hanging Sphesihile on his return.

They were hanged to death by their father at their Wyebank home on Tuesday afternoon.

Ayakha, an academic achiever at Pinetown Girls’ High School, went missing after she was fetched from school by her step father Sbu Mpungose.

A manhunt led to a gruesome discovery – her lifeless body near some bushes in New Germany. She had been strangled with the belt of a bathrobe.

Sbu Mpungose was discovered hiding in KwaDebeka by police on Wednesday.

Mpungose was arrested and made a brief appearance in the Pinetown Magistrate’s Court on Friday.

The man, who wept often during the short proceedings, was represented by Legal Aid and abandoned his bid for bail. He was remanded in custody and will appear in court next month.
