Man jailed for mutilation murder
Johannesburg - A man who mutilated and killed his live-in partner at their home in Jabavu, Soweto, was sentenced to 15 years' imprisonment by the Protea Magistrate's Court on Friday.
Moji Tsekedi, the daughter of Corinthians Apostolic Church Archbishop Nchime Tsekedi, was murdered by Wanda Nkosi on May 15 after an argument at their home, said department of women spokesperson Sibani Mngadi.
Tsekedi was not seen for four days, but Nkosi went to work as usual.
On May 19, neighbours decided to go to her house and investigate. Inside, they found Tsekedi's mutilated body, said Mngadi.
Nkosi had disappeared.
Mngadi said Minister for Women Lulu Xingwana attended the court proceedings on Friday.
He said she visited Tsekedi's family in May because domestic violence was a matter of urgency and she wanted to make people aware of the challenges women faced.
Most attacks on women were perpetrated by people close to them, said Mngadi.
