Men stab lesbian for 'stealing' girlfriends

2011-06-14 08:12

Cape Town - A gay woman was stabbed four times by men who accused her of stealing their girlfriends in Crossroads in the Western Cape, The Times reported on Tuesday.

Noxolo Nkosana, 23, was getting out of a car on Friday night, returning home after work when two men, both Crossroads residents, approached her.

"They called to me but I didn't respond. Then they said: 'Hey you! Fucking tomboy!'," she said.

"I kept quiet. When I looked back, one of them was coming for me. He stabbed me twice in the back and I fell down. While my partner screamed for help, he stabbed me two more times."

Men in Nkosana's neighbourhood told the daily it was wrong for two women to be lovers.

One of her neighbours, Siyabonga Ngxaki, 22, said lesbian couples were setting bad examples for children.

"This community does not accept it and they are not a good example to the kids. They should hide what they are doing because the kids will emulate them. I don't want my baby girl to see them," he said.
