Husband catches wife’s boyfriend, shoots him twice || A man has recorded shooting his wife’s boyfriend twice in the leg with a handgun.
The shooter is heard accusing the victim of ‘messing up’ with his family as he drives big cars.
“This man has messed up my family it’s too much. He is driving nice cars, you don’t mess up with me,” the man is recorded saying.
The incident happened in Limpopo.
Limpopo police spokesman Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said the man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.
“His gun had been confiscated as he is yet to appear before Mokopane Magistrates Court today for a bail application: Mojapelo said.

The incident has been widely condemned on social media.
Gun violence is rife in South Africa despite the government giving amnesty to people with unlicensed firearms.
The police released a statement, part of which read:
A new Firearm Amnesty for a period of six months, commencing today, 1 August 2020 until 31 January 2021, has been approved by Parliament during this past week.
The previous amnesty period which was also intended for a period of six months, between December 2019 and May 2020 was thwarted by the unexpected Covid-19 pandemic. Despite this, the South African Police Service received a resounding 46 714 firearms.
However, we believe that there are much more firearms out there that still need to be surrendered and we are confident the response to the previous amnesty would have been even more resounding if it were not for the pandemic.
