A KwaZulu-Natal mother said her two sons are on the road to recovery after their father allegedly poisoned them and himself on Monday.
Speaking on Wednesday, the mother, who cannot be named to protect the identities of the boys aged 10 and four, said they were doing well.
The two boys and their father were airlifted to the hospital on Monday afternoon.
“The oldest is now talking. He recognizes me and even remembers what happened that day,” said the mother while she was visiting her children in hospital.
She said her husband was also recovering.
She said on Monday she arrived at her home in Nteke, west of Durban, to find it swarming with neighbours, police officers and paramedics.
“I thought, what would I have been left with without my children? I was not okay that day,” she said.
The mother was at work when the alleged poisoning took place.
A relative who spoke to TimesLIVE at the home on Monday said the couple was having marital problems and the family tried to mediate on Sunday.
Police spokesperson Col Thembeka Mbele confirmed the incident.
“It is alleged the father poisoned himself and children,” he said.
