THE body of 30-year-old Thabani Nzuza, who was stabbed to death, was found lying on the side of Regina Road in Northdale on Sunday morning.

Nonhlanhla Mnikathi said her boyfriend was discovered at around 5.30 am by a motorist who was driving past.

“I last saw him yesterday [Saturday] morning when he left home for one of his piece jobs. He didn’t come home at night and when it got really late, I started calling him, but his phone rang unanswered,” she said.

Mnikathi, who stays at Nkululeko informal settlement in Northdale, said she was “heartbroken” when she was told that Nzuza was dead.

She suspects he may have gotten into a fight with the person who stabbed him as he still had his cellphone in his pocket.

Nzuza is survived by three children. No official comment had been received from the SAPS at the time of going to print.
