Domestic spat ends in double shooting in J-Bay

24 January 2014
Shaun Gillham

JUST hours after engaging with a senior Jeffreys Bay police officer over domestic violence on Wednesday, a mother of six was gunned down by her enraged husband while clutching her five-month-old baby.

Cynthia Zumani, 36, of Roman Street in the Pellsrus suburb of Jeffreys Bay, was shot at nearly point-blank range in the forehead shortly after 7pm by her husband of seven years, Innocent, who then turned the firearm on himself.

In a strong indication that the incident was premeditated, and substantiated by both police and family members yesterday, Zumani had started work at 6pm but returned home at about 7pm. He shot his wife shortly afterwards.

The bodies of the couple were found by family members who heard the two shots from where they live nearby.
