David Lubisi, 40-year old laborer from South Africa, was reportedly having problems with the girlfriend, so after a row with her, he decided on committed suicide by walking into South Africa’s crocodile-infested Lepelle river. As expected, he was eaten alive! He was reported to be drunk prior to the incidence.
The father-of-three has been missing for more than a week after apparently telling a colleague about his horror plan on April 7.
Sergeant Malesela Makgopa said: “The man has not been seen since the incident and his body has not been found.
“Our investigations have revealed that at around 7pm on April 7 he told a co-worker he wanted to walk into the river, which he knew to be infested with crocodiles.
“We believe he may have been having domestic problems with his girlfriend and that he wanted to commit suicide.
“If that is true then it was a particularly horrible and painful way to die.”Source: www.thesun.co.uk
There are also reports from Lubisi’s relatives that he didn’t commit suicide but was pushed.
But Esther says it is “impossible” because Lubisi did not drink alcohol at all He was a member of the Zion Christian Church and adhered to the church’s doctrine.
“I think the police must look at this very closely. My brother was a sober man. I insist that he did not drink alcohol.”
“I think my brother was killed and fed to crocodiles, or just thrown into the river,” Lubisi said. “I have asked police to be thorough with their investigation.
“There are many unanswered questions. His employer did not immediately come to us or send one of the other employees to come and tell us about the incident.
“We only got to know about it when police came to the family two days later.”
Jesper Kehlet, owner of Balule River Camp and Lubisi’s boss, claimed that he gathered from his employees that Lubisi had thrown himself into the river. He also claimed that he had drunk alcohol on two previous occasions.
But Kehlet contradicted himself when he said he would “immediately” fire any employee found drinking at work.Source: www.sowetanlive.co.za
Interestingly, the murder of farm workers seems to be on the rise.
Lizah Lekhuleni, a ward councillor in the Bushbuckridge municipality, called on the government to tighten laws to stop the murder of farmworkers “because the practice is becoming prevalent”.
Lekhuleni said the municipality would support the family of Lubisi until the truth came out.
The law enforcements haven’t ruled out foul play but also claim the lack of reason to believe that anyone else was involved.
Suicide or murder, it is definitely a horrible way to die!
