POLOKWANE: A 24-year-old woman is expected to appear before Lulekani Magistrates’ court tomorrow on Tuesday 10 August 2021 for allegedly stabbing her boyfriend to death with a beer bottle on Saturday 07 August 2021 at about 19:45 in Majeje village Lulekani, outside Phalaborwa.

It is alleged that a 24-year-old suspect from Majeje village got information that her boyfriend was with another woman near a liquor outlet in the area, and she reportedly rushed to the outlet where she found him with the unidentified woman. An argument ensued and it is reported that the suspect stabbed the boyfriend with a beer bottle. The victim, aged 36, was certified dead by paramedics on the spot. The suspect later handed herself over to the police at Namakgale.

The Provincial Commissioner of Police in Limpopo Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe has strongly condemned this incident and has urged community members to resort to lawful means when dealing with relationship challenges.

“Community members are warned against taking the law into their hands following this incident and must give the Police space to handle the case unhindered,” concluded Lieutenant General Hadebe.

The suspect will face a charge of murder.
