Nonkuthalo Nomvalo, 28, described the trauma she suffered in Soweto’s Mofolo area while walking with her then boyfriend, Ayanda Mnandi, when an argument broke out.
Mnandi, 31, then allegedly stabbed Nomvalo nine times in her upper body. Nomvalo said she was helped by an old man, who had to beat Mnandi with stones to repel his alleged vicious attack.
According to Constable Hlamalani Ngoveni, Mnandi was handed over to Joburg metro police department officers by the Mofolo community.
The officers found a gun in his pocket, and they then handed him over to Jabulani police station.
