A woman who enjoyed a sexual relationship with two men is on the run for her life after the relationship ended in tragedy.

Daily Sun ZA gathered that the two men she dated for years never fought because they took turns to spend time with her, but last Thursday was the last as the peaceful arrangement turned violent when both men wanted her for the night at the same time.

During a heated fight on who should take her for the night, Amos Mahlangu from Chris Hani kasi, near Etwatwa in Ekurhuleni, was allegedly stabbed to death by his rival.

He was declared dead his alleged killer arrested, but before the community members could mobilize to attack her, the woman fled.

One resident told Daily Sun: “What she did was wrong. She’s a woman and in our culture only a man can take two women or more. It’s a taboo.

“We don’t want to see her here any more. She must not come here again because we are going to avenge Amos’ death.”

Although many residents said they were against what the woman had done, some women praised her for having two men at the same time.

“She’s my hero. It’s hard for us to have one man but she had two. Wow, she knew her game,” said one woman.

Another woman added: “Men also have too many women.

“What’s wrong with her having more than one man?

“This is a democracy.”

Meanwhile, Amos’ family members said they just wanted to see justice served.

His sister, Elizabeth Khumalo, said: “This man must pay for what he did.

“That woman was practicing polyandry!”

Polyandry means a woman who has more than one man. The killer has now appeared in court standing trial for murder after his case was opened at the Etwatwa Police Station.
