In South Africa, medical doctor kills wife, self


A 35-year-old medical doctor, Mphikeleli Shikwambana, turned a gun on himself after he allegedly killed his wife, Dr. Tshimangadzo Muofhe, in Polokwane, South Africa.

Shikwambana was attached to the Donald Frazer Hospital in Thohoyandou while his 32-year-old wife was also a doctor at the Provincial Hospital in Polokwane.

But while the French giants remain keen to secure a deal, Saudi chiefs are hoping they can lure the Barcelona legend to the Middle East.

They are set to offer him the same deal Cristiano Ronaldo, 38, agreed when he joined Al-Nassr in December.

The Limpopo Health Department in a statement issued on Tuesday, mourned the tragic passing of its medical doctors.

Health MEC Dr. Phophi Ramathuba and acting HOD, Dr Dombo, who were on the scene with the families of the deceased, have described their death as an immense loss to the department.

“This is a sad day for me and the entire department. We are devastated. Losing such hardworking, dedicated, and promising young people is a blow for us as the department,” MEC Ramathuba said.

‘Dr. Mphikeleli Shikwambana, prior his permanent appointment, he served for two years as an Acting Clinical Manager for Donald Fraser Hospital where he managed to turn the hospital around from leading in maternal death in the Vhembe district to recording zero during that tenure and he continued sustaining his excellent performance in clinical governance leading to us giving him the responsibility to act as the overall head of the institution at the beginning of this month

“On the other hand his wife Dr. Tshimangadzo Muofhe will be missed by her colleagues and patients in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology department of Pietersburg hospital for her dedication and commitment when it comes to protecting pregnant women and their unborn children.

“Death has once more stolen the best amongst us and on behalf of the department of health we send our deepest and heartfelt condolences to the families, friends, colleagues and patients of the deceased, and may their departed souls rest in peace.”
