A SANGOMA sister (34) bullied everyone in the house. She even introduced a new rule for her two younger brothers that no girlfriends were allowed in the family home.
But her brother (24) defied the rule and brought home his 17-year-old pregnant girl just to chill.
All hell broke loose when the sangoma allegedly stabbed her brother to death on Friday night.
The mother of three from Oakmoor extension 7, in Tembisa, Ekurhuleni, is now behind bars.
A relative told Daily Sun that the sangoma’s mother died years ago, leaving her three children, but said the 34-year-old had her own house.
“She used to live in her own house but came back during her thwasa period.
“The arrangement was that when she was done with the whole thwasa process, she would go back to her own house,” said a relative.
“She made everybody’s life a living hell.
“As a family we don’t believe the murder was a mistake.
“Some relatives even stopped visiting the house because she always insulted them.”
According to the relative, the sangoma ordered her brother to send the girl back home just after 9pm.
“She started a fight after telling her brother to send the girl home.
“He stood up and was ready to leave but she pushed him and blocked the door, forcing him to fight her.
“She then went to the kitchen and came back with a knife and stabbed him in his chest,” the relative claimed.
“The other brother tried to make peace between his siblings but failed.
“The man died on the scene.”
Police spokesman Captain Ralidzivha Manyadza said the woman appeared briefly in Tembisa Magistrates Court for murder.
“She was denied bail and is expected to appear again in court next Tuesday,” Manyadza said.
