A woman is in critical condition after being shot by her brother when she decided to break up with him.
49-year-old Andrea Dube of South Africa, began a sexual relationship with his sister on the advice of a traditional healer.
According to reports, the healer had advised the brother, who has committed a number of armed robberies, that he would become rich if he slept with his sister.
35-year-old Nokuthula Dube, agreed to sleep with her brother so that he can become rich. Andrea Dube demanded to be exclusive with his sister and did not allow her to date other men.
However, after three years, Nokuthula was fed up and broke up with her brother Dube. She escaped to live with a friend in Diepsloot, Johannesburg.
The friend said that Nokuthula had enough of the relationship and sought refuge at her house. “She had agreed to sleep with her brother so that he may become rich, but later realized it was wrong and escaped,” the friend said.
This angered the brother, who went searching for her. When Andrea Dube found his sister he ordered her to come with him at gunpoint.
“We were ordered to lie down and we obeyed. Then Nokuthula Dube, was ordered to get into the car outside. Has threatened to kill her if she screamed,” the friend added.
When the woman saw passersby outside, she screamed for help, infuriating her armed brother. He pulled the trigger and shot her in the chest. He walked away, leaving her unconscious.
Diepsloot police spokesperson Warrant Officer Daniel Mavimbela, said that police are searching for the man and he will be charged with attempted murder.
It was reported that the relationship between the siblings was known to the family, but no one was brave enough to stop it due to the violent nature of Andrea Dube.
The parents of the siblings reportedly approved the illicit relationship after being convinced that it had the potential to make their son and the whole family rich.
