If anything should happen to me tonight, my husband should be a 1st suspect
Few months ago, it was reported that32-year-old Siphokazi Khumalo was attacked with a knife by her ex-boyfriend in the bathroom of the Ballito Junction Regional Mall on the evening of October 18.
Khumalo was later found lying in a pool of blood in a bathroom cubicle. One of her arms lay stretched across her face‚ exposing the knife wound which stretched across her neck from ear to ear.
The man who wasn’t named, had an altercation with Khumalo and pursued her as she fled into a bathroom.
A shop attendant who works at an outlet store near the restroom‚ who spoke to TimesLIVE on condition of anonymity‚ said that screams had drawn her attention as she was collating the day’s takings.
“I was doing cash up and all of a sudden I heard ladies screaming. The women came running out of the bathroom and they were all just screaming‚” she said.
She said that they were followed by Khumalo’s alleged attacker‚ who walked out casually.
“He just walked out and I noticed him because he was so well dressed. It is like he had no emotion at all. He came outside and just held his arms out in front of him like he wanted to be handcuffed and he didn’t care‚” the shop attendant said.
The suspect, 30, was apprehended by two members of the public before police arrived at the scene and arrested him. He appeared in court on Friday. Police spokeswoman Colonel Thembeka Mbhele said that detectives had registered a case of murder and that the motive for the woman’s slaying was unknown.
