A 32 year old woman was shot and killed by the father of her children at Seshego, near Polokwae in Limpopo.
Tshepo Rakoma was shot and killed at a parking lot while sitting in her car last week.
Rakoma’s body was found with multiple gunshot wounds.
The family of the woman said they blamed themselves for her death, saying they ignored her warnings and pleas for help.
Family spokesperson Tebogo Pila says they are struggling to come to terms with the death of their loved one.
“We are very sad, we are broken, and we are shattered. We don’t know how we are feeling. No one has been in their normal senses, especially my mother who now has to take care of the orphaned three kids. We don’t even know to explain how we feel…”
The 34 year old suspect was arrested on the scene after attempting to commit suicide by threatening to jump off a building.

He made his first court appearance on Monday.
Director of Public Prosecutions’ Regional Spokesperson Mashudu Malabi-Dzhangi, says the Lebogo faces charges of murder, as well as the unlawful possession of a firearm and ammunition.
