Johannesburg - A woman accused of cutting off her boyfriend's penis arrived at the Protea Magistrate's Court in Soweto on Friday.

Evidence Nkuna, 21, faces charges of attempted murder for allegedly attacking her boyfriend on 6 October when she found him with another woman and ordered them to strip naked.

Nkuna allegedly took out a knife and cut off her boyfriend's penis. She was arrested soon afterwards.

She was sitting outside the courtroom waiting for her case to be called.

She sat alone looking down at her cellphone and occasionally staring into space.

Dressed in the same purple head-scarf, beige trench-coat and long skirt as she had in her appearance earlier this week in the Meadowlands Magistrate's Court, she made no eye contact or conversation with people around her.

She initially appeared in the Meadowlands Magistrate's Court on Wednesday on a charge of assault with intent to do grievous bodily harm.

Nkuna was released on bail of R2 500.
