Police say the perpetrator allegedly got angry at the girlfriend for not reporting a rape case which she was a victim of.

“It was alleged by the victim’s grandmother that the couple stayed together at the girlfriend’s residential place and fight ensued when the boyfriend requested to know why the girlfriend refused to report a rape that occurred last night committed by a local resident and the argument started that led to the tragic end.”

“The grandmother was contacted by the neighbour who witnessed the assault incident and blew the whistle. When members arrived at the scene the ambulance then rushed the deceased to the hospital where she was certified dead on arrival” said police.

Murder case docket opened and the suspect was arrested and set to appear at Mbibana Magistrate court on Monday.

    I like the way you explained things but if you coukved spoken about how the ambulance took a U-turn whilst on it’s way here at the crime scene, if you could talk how long the emergency response took hours to arrive. Talk about how the neighbours were literally watching as this escalated, how negligent the neighbours were. I’m a kid, a 16 year old kid who lives 3 houses away from the woman’s house, and this is a cry
    .
