Cape Town - A man has appeared in the Athlone Magistrate's Court for allegedly stabbing his pregnant schoolgirl girlfriend to death, the Daily Voice reported on Wednesday.

Avukile Njanya, 23, emerged from the holding cells on Tuesday with bruises on his face and wearing a pink jersey stained with blood.

He was assaulted by residents following 20-year-old Ncebakazi Bili's death at the weekend.

Bili, a matric student, was 8-months pregnant when she was stabbed to death at the Samora Machel township in Philippi on Saturday. Her unborn baby also died.

According to the report, Njanya is accused of killing her in a jealous rage.

The matter was postponed to Tuesday for a bail application.

    1. Don't bother trying him, just hang him and get it over with. 2. Why on earth do we still have so many girls getting pregnant during their school-going years? There really should be a concentrated drive to provide contraception to sexually active youngsters. And for those who will now say "it's freely available at government clinics" - have you ever been to one of the clinics? The nurses there would make a nun feel ashamed for asking for medicine! 3. Why on earth do we still have so many 20 year olds in matric? Our education system is failing our children, and it seems like nothing will ever be done about it. Cry the beloved country indeed.

      I agree with you – our education system is in shambles. However, that's not always the reason there are older children/teenagers in Matric. A lot of the time, especially in impoverished areas, kids have to leave school for a while to help out at home for a few years. If they're lucky enough to be able to come back to school, they land up being much older than they should have been when they matriculate. Not saying that's the case here, but it's an additional reason.
