This burnt VW Polo belongs to the Khumalos in Kagiso Phase 2.  ~ 

HE BROKE up with the girl four years ago and had all but forgotten about her.

Today Thulani Khumalo (30) remembers her – but for all the wrong reasons!

The girl’s current boyfriend allegedly torched Thulani’s family’s car!

Rebecca Khumalo (64) from Kagiso Phase 2, west of Joburg told Daily Sun that the girl’s boyfriend came to their house early on Monday morning.

“It was at about 5am when he parked his white BMW outside my home,” said Rebecca.

“He got out of the car, pulled out a gun and made a call to my son on his phone, asked him where his ex-girlfriend was.

“My son told him they were no longer together,” said Rebecca.

Rebecca said the guy then told her son that he would show him his fury.

“Minutes later after the phone call I heard a neighbour calling my name, screaming that my house is on fire.

“When we got out of the house, the car was half burned and the garage had already caught fire,” she added.

Rebecca said she didn’t know why the man was looking for the woman so badly that he ended up setting their car alight.

“The woman he demanded to see is old news to the family.

“It must have been really important for him to find her to come looking for her here so early in the morning,” she said.

“All I want is for this man to fix the things that he torched,” said Rebecca.

Police spokesman Captain Solomon Sibiya said a case of malicious damage to property was opened at Kagiso Police Station.

“The suspect has not been arrested yet. Investigations continue,” he said.
