Mum ‘strangles’ her son (2)!


A DEVASTATED father has taken to social media to share how his son was killed, allegedly by the child’s mum.

The two-year-old was allegedly strangled by his mum in her car at her home in Dobsonville Gardens, Soweto on Saturday, 4 February. The dad said she was playing loud music while doing this.

“She then left the scene and the child in the car and went to the police station to hand herself over,” said the dad.

He said his head is all over the place and he’s left with so many questions.

The man said he did everything he was supposed to do when his child was born.

He paid damages and even gifted the family with a cow to cleanse their home.

He further questioned if she did this because he’s a present father.

“Maybe if I denied the pregnancy and disappeared my son would still be alive.


“I’m just shattered and don’t see how I’ll be able to recover from this,” he said.

He said that his bundle of joy recently started creche and he looked forward to walking hand-in-hand with him.

“It’s like I’m dreaming. I’m weak mentally, physically, psychologically and spiritually. I need some serious help. I’m failing to comprehend this whole situation,” he said.

He said his boy will be buried in Soweto on Friday, 10 February.

Gauteng police spokesman Lieutenant-Colonel Mavela Masondo said a 30-year-old woman handed herself over to the cops in Doornkop after she allegedly killed her two-year-old child in Dobsonville Gardens, Soweto, on Saturday. The suspect appeared in the Roodepoort Magistrates Court on Tuesday, 7 February on a charge of murder.

“The suspect went to Doornkop Police Station and reported to the police that she killed her two-year-old child. The police proceeded to the scene and found the little boy who was declared dead. The motive for the killing cannot be confirmed at this stage,” he said.
