Viola was killed on Saturday night, August 1, 2020 and her 3 children witnessed her being hacked with an axe.
It is alleged that Kakai was dropped from her workplace by a friend, but on hearing the sound of the car engine, her husband, Simon who, it is said, often quarreled whenever she returned home, came out and ‘stoned the vehicle’, forcing the unknown colleague to speed off.
Simon suspected the driver of the car to be in a relationship with his wife.
