A man, Maveji Mabaso, who had planned to marry two women on the same day has killed himself and his bride, Noxolo Khanyile, for allegedly refusing to share her bed with another woman.
According to DailySun ZA, Mabaso allegedly killed his wife before driving back to his home in Ezimfabeni, Ulundi, northern KwaZulu-Natal to kill himself. He was rushed to a nearby hospital but he died on the way.
Mabaso’s older brother confirmed that his brother had two fiances for whom he had paid equal bride price. He said:“He wanted a huge white wedding where he would marry both of them on the same day. I don’t know the circumstances around the tragic incident because my brother didn’t leave a note."

The deceased's brother further added that the second fiance, Phiwe Shwala, had just sorted out her relationship with Mabaso after being separated for a long time.
Shwala said she was almost killed as well because she was also against his marriage plans. She said: “Maveji came to my house last week and throttled me until I could not breathe. He suddenly changed his mind and stopped. I forgive him now that he is dead.”
“I denied him an opportunity to negotiate the wedding date.”
Police spokeswoman, Thembeka Mbhele, who confirmed the tragic incident said the motive for the shooting was that Khanyile had broken up with Mabaso and he could not take it.
