Gunshots and petrol bombs ended the lives of
three people in Philippi East on Christmas Day.
Mondleki, 26, and Garry Dladla, 38, died in hospital after their shack was set
alight by Mondleki’s ex-boyfriend in the early hours.
Batyi, 30, owner of the house at which the couple was renting a shack, said
they had been sitting together with the couple and a few friends enjoying a few
drinks on Christmas Eve.
Captain FC Van Wyk adds that christmas day ended very
tragically for three families in Philipi east when they each lost a relative after
a fire was started by an alleged jealous ex-lover.
Van Wyk said
that a confrontation followed after which the ex boyfreind threw petrol bombs at
the couples shack, trapped them inside and the boyfriend retaliated by
shooting the suspect and fatally wounding him.
Van Wyk adds that
the police are investigating a case of arson and murder.
