Two women were arrested for allegedly stabbing their husbands to death at the weekend, police said.

The two women, aged 40 and 41, allegedly killed their husbands in two separate incidents in Soshanguve and Rosslyn, North of Pretoria on Saturday and Sunday respectively.

In the first stabbing, the 41-year-old Soshanguve woman killed her 34-year-old husband on Saturday morning.

Police spokesperson Captain Reineth Motlana said the couple apparently had had an argument around 04:00 on Saturday, in their Soshanguve Extension 4 house before the tragic incident.

“The woman allegedly took out a knife and stabbed her husband in the chest. It is not clear how many times, but the man died as a result of the stab wounds. He lost a lot of blood,” said Motlana.

Motlana said a case of murder was being investigated.

In a second incident, on Sunday around 16:30, a 40-year-old woman from Rosslyn, North of Pretoria stabbed her husband following an argument.

“It is alleged the couple also had an argument, and the wife took out a knife and stabbed her husband in the chest,” said Motlana.

Both women were expected in the Pretoria North Magistrate’s Court soon.
