TWO years ago, Joseph Rikhotso’s jealous wife petrol bombed the family home of his alleged nyatsi.
And last Tuesday, he had more bad luck when his son’s throat was slit by an unknown man!
The grieving father from Orange Farm, Joburg told Daily Sun he feared his son, Oupa (23) was murdered by the nyatsi’s family in revenge.
He said he was at work when he received a phone call to say that Oupa had been stabbed.
“I rushed home thinking he had just been injured. But when I got there I found his lifeless body in a pool of blood at the local fire station, where paramedics were trying to resuscitate him,” he said.
Joseph said the incident occurred on the anniversary of the day his wife accused him of cheating. He said at the time of his death, Oupa had a bright future ahead of him in the music industry.
“He recently released a music video called I Want to be a Ben10, which many people loved.”
Joseph said his son was with friends in a salon when an unknown man came in and slit his throat with a knife.
Oupa’s eight-month pregnant girlfriend, Andile Moloi (19), said she had lost her best friend.
Gauteng police spokesman Captain Kay Makhubela said a murder case was opened and the suspect was on the run.
