Njabulo Siziba’s (40) family have approached South African courts demanding the exhumation of their son’s body after his ex-girlfriend allegedly facilitated his burial in their absence amid suspicions that he may have been poisoned.
Siziba who was based in Estcourt, South Africa, died in the neighbouring country after a short illness on April 1 and his ex-girlfriend, a South African and her family buried him last Saturday despite his family’s disapproval. Njabulo’s family has since hired a lawyer Mr Sipho Ngubane, to take the matter to South African courts for their relative’s body to be exhumed.
Njabulo’s father Mr David Siziba said his son fell sick after visiting his ex-girlfriend, the mother of one of his four children Ms Nobuhle Luvolwethu Siyaya to see his child a few weeks ago. He said when he returned home he suddenly fell sick and died. He said his family suspects that his son was poisoned. He said following his death, Ms Siyaya rushed from her home in Richards Bay to Estcourt and kicked out a woman who was now living with his son, only identified as Nompilo. She reportedly registered Njabulo under five life insurance companies where she was the beneficiary in all of them.
