A primary school teacher, Kate Chiloane, was shot dead by her husband in front of pupils on Monday.
Mail & Guardian reports that a spokesperson for Mpumalanga Department of Education, Jasper Zwane, said that the husband entered the Grade Two class under the pretence that he wanted to get something from his wife.
Chiloane’s husband was reported to have shot his wife in the classroom in front of the pupils but she ran into the staff room. He chased after her and shot her dead.
“He then shot her but she managed to get away and tried running to the staff-room but he followed her and shot her again outside where she died,” said Zwane.
Her husband, Vusi Mdhluli, killed himself in their home after killing his wife.
The 30-year- old lady teaches at Sedibasathutho primary school near Bushbuckridge.
Sister to the deceased, Bridget Chiloane, 37, said her sister had been a victim of domestic violence but never thought her husband will kill her in cold blood.
Bridget also said the couple was in the process of getting divorced, and the husband, Vusi Mdhluli, could not handle it, after being married for only a year.
