Thursday morning, Ntokozo Mayenzi Xaba was discovered with several stab wounds at her off-campus house in Pretoria.
A friend of deceased Tshwane University of Technology student Ntokozo Xaba has now recounted what transpired in the 21-year-final old’s hours.
According to authorities, Xaba was drinking with pals, including her ex-boyfriend, on Wednesday evening.
The companions left Xaba with the man after he requested a private conversation with her. The next day, her companions discovered her with multiple stab wounds to the neck.
The friend stated that they were apprehensive to leave her with him due to the fact that Xaba had filed an assault lawsuit against the man the previous year.
During the 2022 season, the suspect represented Blue Bulls country districts.
The Blue Bulls issued a statement in which they said, “while we do not know all the details of the incident, we wish to reiterate that we continue to condemn all forms of gender-based violence in the strongest terms possible.”
Willem Strauss, president of the Blue Bulls rugby association, extended his condolences to Xaba’s family.
“I would like to send my heartfelt condolences to a family whose world has been turned upside down — a family who has lost a branch from their tree that was filled with so much hope for the good things in life.”
Additionally, a man will appear in court for attempting to murder his ex-girlfriend.
The Student Representative Council (SRC) urged the law to act fast to deliver Xaba’s family and the student body justice.
“The killing of women has gotten out of hand. If the law does not act fast, the perpetrators will believe they can get away with it.”
The council is concerned about the high prevalence of gender-based violence in tertiary institutions adding that it needs urgent attention.
Her anguished relatives stated that all Xaba desired was to be exceptional. They characterized her as an outgoing person who cared about others.
