Budaza Skhumba (55) from Legonyane appeared in the Brits Magistrate’s Court for charges of assault and murder.
In today’s society, it is not taken into consideration that most if not over 70% of murder cases erupt from domestic violence and happens within the boundaries of relationships. This is also strongly influenced by gratuitous violence freely broadcasted through the media and in specific television.
Despite age restrictions, it still does not stop the image of violence protruding into the subconscious of a population that is already well incited to violence on a political and domestic level. Budaza assaulted and killed his wife on 21 January, 2016, and was arrested immediately. He has appeared a few times in the Brits Magistrate’s Court. The matter has now being postponed to 25 June, 2016
