Reports show that abuse is most likely to happen in the home from someone you know.
Karabo Mokoena was killed by her boyfriend Sandile Mantsoe.
And recently, a female student Zolile Khumalo was shot dead by her ex-boyfriend, murder accused Thabani Mzolo, at a Durban university residence. He allegedly posted on social media about shooting her and was subsequently arrested.
In his comment, Bongani Bingwa reiterates this point by telling the story of Nompumelelo Mthembu who was doused with petrol and had a tyre placed around her neck which was then set alight.
It was a classic necklacing.— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host
Villagers tried to assist her by throwing water on her to put out the flames and her assailant then pelted them and her with stones.— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host
Who was he and why would he do this?— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host
He adds that it was Mthembu's estranged father of her three children.
Out on bail. For rape. His victim? Nompumelelo. How? He is charged with having shoved a knobkerrie up her private parts.— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host
Mthembu's family, including her children are now in hiding because they fear for their lives.— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host
Why? This man is still at large, not behind bars. The heavens have long stopped listening to women like Nompumelelo. Shakespeare wrote that 500 years ago. It's not breaking news.— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host
Is the law listening? Is the legal system?The courts, governement, parliament? Are we?— Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show Host
