A 15-year-old girl identified as Babalwa Mbhele, has been killed by her 29-year-old boyfriend who stabbed her multiple times.
The boyfriend was also rushed to the hospital after he was attacked by residents in Umlazi, KZN, South Africa, after they discovered he had killed his girlfriend.
Babalwa’s sister, Silindile (30), said they were woken up at 2am by residents who came to tell them Babalwa had been stabbed. Upon rushing to the resident of the suspect, Babalwa’s body was found there.
She said, “She was naked and covered in blood. “I did not know my little sister was dating a man who was older than her, It was painful, seeing her lying dead in a pool of blood. She had three stab wounds on her body.”
A neighbour said they heard a woman screaming, but they thought she was dancing because the music was so very loud.
He said the suspect came to his house and told his son to come to his house to see what he had done. He said his son came running and told them the girlfriend was dead.
“We rushed to the suspect’s shack and we found him there. We asked him why he had killed her. Other residents came and the man was attacked,” said the neighbour.
Police spokeswoman Colonel Thembeka Mbele said a man (29) was arrested in connection with the death of a 15-year-old girl.
