A 35-year-old South African who greatly values his culture, has killed his 27-year-old fiancée over a bottle of whiskey. According to reports, Za, when the suspect bought a bottle of Jameson whiskey, he told everyone in his household he would be the one to open it. But his fiancee, Palesa Moloi, could not resist the booze when she saw it inside the cupboard, and took a sip, triggering the suspect to stab her several times for not obeying him.
Captain Bernard Matimulane said when cops arrived at the couple’s rented room, they found the drunken suspect staring at Palesa’s body. He said, “When police interrogated him, he told them he killed the woman because she opened his bottle of whiskey and drank some while he was not around. He told the cops only he, as the head of the household, was entitled to open the liquor. He claimed it was his culture.”
