In a chilling turn of events, the peaceful night in KwaMachi, Harding, took a tragic twist when 30-year-old Sanele Cele met a cold-blooded end, allegedly at the hands of his fiancée, Swazelihle Mshengu. This shocking incident unfolded shortly after a heated late-night argument, shattering the dreams of a once-promising union.

The unfolding tragedy began with an intense dispute between the ill-fated couple, escalating into a nightmarish conclusion that forever altered the course of their relationship. What was meant to be a time of shared love turned into a haunting memory as Sanele Cele faced a fatal stabbing in his sleep.
The Morning Call: A Grim Reality
The grim news reached Sanele’s family through an early-morning call from their distressed father. Urged to rush to the hospital, Sanele’s older brother, Njabulo, encountered a heartbreaking reality — his brother had succumbed to a fatal stab wound. The family now grapples with disbelief and sorrow, seeking answers to the tragic demise.
Seeking Justice: A Family’s Anguish
In an emotional interview with ZiMoja, Njabulo expressed the family’s profound anguish, demanding justice for their fallen brother. The weight of betrayal hangs heavy as he questions, “How can she face us as a family after what she did to our brother? How could she take the life of the father of her child, especially in his sleep?”
Troubled Dynamics: Unraveling the Relationship
Sanele’s sister, Sihle, provided insights into the troubled dynamics of the ill-fated relationship. Despite having paid lobola for his fiancée in March, the family noticed a concerning shift in the couple’s interactions. Sihle revealed, “She was very manipulative and did not want him to be close to us.” What was initially a warm welcome now transforms into the chilling realization that they may have embraced not a sister but an alleged murderer.

The grieving family emphasized the devastating impact of the tragedy on the couple’s child, now left without both parents. Njabulo alleged a premeditated plan, pointing to Sanele’s purported intoxication on the day of the incident. “She planned this because we were told that Sanele was drunk on the day of the incident. We know Sanele does not like fighting, especially when he is drunk. He will just sleep,” he claimed.
