SHOCKING! Man stabs girlfriend to death for breaking up with him
A South African man, identified as Marvin Lambert, has allegedly stabbed his girlfriend, Zanele Pretty Hlatshwayo, to death for ending their relationship.
The incident happened on Wednesday, March 15, 2023, in Witbank, Mpumalanga, South Africa.
According to reports, Zanele had recently ended her relationship with the suspect, Marvin Lambert, but he did not accept it. On the day of the incident, Marvin reportedly killed Zanele in front of their one-year-old son and then attempted to commit suicide.
The suspect is currently in a hospital under police surveillance after the suicide attempt. The motive behind the attack is yet to be ascertained, but investigations are ongoing to uncover what led to the murder.
Following the incident, the deceased’s sister, Precious Thokozile Hlatshwayo, and friends and other family members have taken to social media to demand justice for Zanele.
The news of her death has caused outrage among South Africans, who have expressed their condolences to the family and called for swift action to be taken against the perpetrator.
The incident highlights the issue of gender-based violence in South Africa, where cases of women being killed by their partners or former partners are all too common.
According to the South African Police Service, there were over 21,000 murders recorded in the country in the 2021/2022 financial year, with women being the majority of the victims in cases related to gender-based violence.
The South African government has taken steps to address the issue, including implementing laws and policies aimed at protecting women and punishing perpetrators of gender-based violence.
However, more needs to be done to address the root causes of this violence, including patriarchal attitudes and gender inequality.
In conclusion, the murder of Zanele Hlatshwayo is a tragic reminder of the urgent need to address gender-based violence in South Africa.
It is hoped that justice will be served and that the government will take further steps to protect women and ensure that cases like this do not happen again in the future.
