KwaZulu-Natal, a coastal South African province, is known for its beaches, mountains and savannah populated by big game. The safari destination Hluhluwe-iMfolozi Park, in the northeast, is home to black and white rhinos, lions and giraffes. Durban is an Indian-influenced harbor city and a popular surfing spot. Cultural villages around the town of Eshowe showcase the traditions of the indigenous Zulu people.
Recently, a tragedy hits surburb of Chatsworth in KZN after a man committed suicide. The circumstances around the death point to the wife whom he accused of cheating. The wife recently gave birth to a white child, something that rattled the heart of the man, only identified as Thanbang Ludwaba.
It is reported that on Friday morning Ludwaba was found lying on the floor in the kitchen. He did not leave a not, or it hasn’t been found as yet. Neighbors who spoke to journalists said the couple had been arguing and shouting at each other for almost a week before the death of Ludwaba.
“I’m not very sure, but the scuffles started when she and the baby came from Hospital. The baby is white, and people have been telling that he was duped and cheated by his wife,” said one neighbour who choose not to be mentioned by name.
“This wife is a cheat. She must be arrested for adultery. How can she cheat with a white man for that matter…” said another angry neighbour.
The police has since removed the remains of Ludwaba from the house and initial tests have pointed that he drank poison.
However experts have said there is a possibility that Ludwaba was the father because of the following three theories:
She’s the result of a gene mutation unique to her. If that is the case, the baby would pass the gene to her children — and they, too, would likely be white.
She’s the product of long-dormant white genes, passed on to her by her parents, that might have been carried by their predecessors for generations without surfacing until now.
While doctors have said the child is not an outright albino, or lacking in all pigment, they added that the child may have some kind of mutated version of the genetic condition — and that her skin could darken over time.
