Men stab lesbian for 'stealing' girlfriends
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.
