Millions of South Africans went to their polling stations on Wednesday to cast their votes in what is seen as one of the most contested elections since the dawn of democracy in 1994.
It was generally a peaceful election – barring several isolated incidents of violence and intimidation -with results expected in a few days time.
By and large it was an election characterised by either continuity or change as seen by the huge number of political parties taking part – 48 of them.
Like in any election there were technical glitches here and there but most observers will agree that generally the elections were free and credible.
The counting of the votes have started in earnest with the ANC seemingly ahead although it’s still early to say if the party will garner the two-thirds majority it hankers for.
According to the IEC the
final result are likely to be announced early next week if there are no serious objections which may result in litigation which may see the inauguration of the winning president delayed.

None of his family members were present.

He is out on warning.
In a bizarre incident, Tshabalala had gone to fetch his son Luyanda from school but had fallen asleep in his car. while his son was attending evening classes.

After class when the young man tapped the window of his father’s car he thought he was being hijacked, pulled a firearm and fired without “realizing” it was his son, his second born child.

The boy died on the scene.
In his revious court appearance Tshabalala was accompanied by his wife who opened up to the media to say she forgives her husband adding that he would never hurt their son deliberately.

So traumatised was.Tshabalala after the incident that he wanted to take his own life, Continue reading “FATHER WHO ACCIDENTALLY SHOT SON DEAD BACK IN COURT”
