“Molefe has robbed me of my only reason for living. He has torn my heart apart!.”
These were the words of an inconsolable Soshanguve mother whose three children were allegedly killed by a “bitter” ex-boyfriend.
Lucia poured her heart out to a cousin named Portia, in the presence of the Pretoria News, on Wednesday afternoon.
The cousin had gone to her home to comfort the 27-year-old mother, Grief remained etched on the faces of family members and friends who had flocked to the home to give their condolences.
Thabang (11), Amogelang (3) and Lebogang (2) were hanged by Molefe Mojutu before he killed himself, also by hanging in his Soshanguve Block W home on Tuesday.
The older two children were from a previous relationship and the youngest was the killer’s child.
Ndala could hardly string a sentence together when she recalled going to the house and finding her children hanged inside a small room. From what the mother understands, the children were fed rat poison before being hanged.
“When I got to that house I saw a horror movie. I touched my first born’s face and told him to wake. That guy has torn my heart apart. He made sure he’d leave me with questions no one in this world could ever answer.
He is cruel and I wish he could have just killed me instead and left my innocent children out of this. I’m just wondering what was going through his mind when he hanged the first one, and then the second one and went on to the third.
How did he feel when they were screaming for help? This guy has left me with so many questions and only he can answer them,” the emotional mother said.
