The Tanzania wife to a Nigerian, Mrs Leyness Mangu Irumudomo, has been killed in South Africa.
The Nigerian Community in South Africa has expressed dismay by the fatal shooting of the wife of a member.
Late Mrs Irumudomo, a.k.a. Mama Lee, 43, was a Tanzanian married to Mr Jackson Igbinosa Irumudomo, a native of Ekpoma in Edo.
They had three children.
Her husband told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the telephone from Pretoria, South Africa, that Mama Lee was shot on Oct. 26, in Soweto.
He said that prior to her death, the Tanzanian had threat text messages.
“My wife and her fellow Tanzanian worked together in the same mall and because of misunderstanding in their work place, the another lady sent her threat messages.
“A docket was opened at Pretoria Central Police Station on the threat to her life by her colleague, who is also a Tanzanian,’’ he said.
Irumudomo said that the death was painful and that he and their children would miss his wife sorely.
Mr Adetola Olubajo, President of the Nigerian Union in South Africa, said that the body was saddened by the death of Mama Lee.
“She was an amiable business woman and a blessing to friends and family. She will be greatly missed because of the vacuum her absence has created,’’ he said.
Olubajo, however, said that the union was worried that killing was now fashionable within the Nigerian community.
A Nigerian was shot dead in Hillbrow, Johannesburg, last week, nothing has been done to bring the perpetrators to book.
“People are now bold to kill one another just by the slightest disagreement because the killers of Nigerians and their family members are not brought to book,’’ he said.
Olubajo also said that “we need investigation and prosecution of the murder cases involving Nigerians directly or indirectly.’’ (NAN)
