According to reports, the suspect cut the boyfriend with a beer bottle following an argument. By the time paramedics arrived on the scene, the victim, aged 36, was dead. Later, the suspect surrendered to the police in Namakgale.
“Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe, the provincial commissioner of police in Limpopo, has condemned this incident and encouraged community members to resort to lawful means when dealing with relationship issues.”
“Lieutenant General Hadebe warned community members against taking the law into their own hands and urged them to allow the police to handle the case unhindered.”
While the incident took place, Limpopo’s Minister of Social Development Nkakareng Rakgoale condemned it loudly.
In light of South Africa’s celebration of Women’s Month, MEC Rakgoale says hearing of such an incident is disappointing.
She said, “It is extremely disturbing to learn about incidents like this during the month of August when women are supposed to be commemorated and celebrated. Gender-based violence is not exclusive to women. Future women must emulate women in 1956 and resolve conflict peacefully,”
In the process of providing psychosocial support, the department had dispatched a team of social workers. Again, we urge people having problems in their relationships not to resort to violence, but rather to seek assistance from our social workers. With the arrest of the suspect, justice will prevail.” she added.
