Palesa Monnane (28) came home from church on Saturday and unlocked the burglar gate.
Suddenly she was shot from inside the house. She was hit in the hand and stomach. She screamed and called her husband, asking what he was doing.
The man realised he had shot his wife. When the SunTeam arrived at the family’s house in Bergman kasi, Mangaung, silicone had been used to close the bullet hole in the RDP’s front door.
Palesa’s aunt Mathabo Sekhoe (37) said she was told by the husband’s brother that he had mistaken Palesa for an intruder.
“What happened is unbelievable. I have been following Oscar’s case and I think he deliberately shot and killed Reeva.
“Now the same thing has happened to my niece and I also think it was not an accident. I’m just lucky she is not dead. Palesa was rushed to the hospital by church members.”
The man’s family refused to comment.
Constable Joy Xaba said the man was arrested and charged with attempted murder. “He will appear in the Bloemfontein Magistrates Court,” said Xaba.
