Kowie DJ named in murder, suicide tragedy

THE Port Alfred man who shot dead his girlfriend before turning the gun on himself on Friday has been identified as Kowie FM afternoon drive show presenter Mduduzi “DJ Mdu” Nsibande.

Mdu allegedly shot dead his girlfriend of 15 years, Judith Petros, 29, before shooting himself at their Nemato township home outside Port Alfred. They leave behind a five-year-old son, Sithembiso.

As Mdu’s family arrived from Johannesburg yesterday to perform a ritual to take his spirit home with them, they described the relationship as “fine, with just the normal ups and downs faced by couples”.

“We were very shocked when we got a phone call form the Port Alfred police on Friday morning to tell us about the incident,” Mdu’s sister, Thembi Nsibande, 24, said.
“This is very sad because he called on New Year’s Day to say he was coming home in February with Judith and their son.”
