Mahikeng - The body of a 31-year-old man was found hanging from a tree in Dwaalkraal near Sannieshof, after he had stabbed his girlfriend, North West police said on Sunday.

Captain Amanda Funani said he was found hanging by a rope in a tree on Saturday.

"It is alleged that the deceased had an argument with his girlfriend that led him to stab her with a pair of scissors before he fled the scene."

She said it was suspected that he thought his girlfriend was dead and he went away with the intention of committing suicide. However, she had survived with minor injuries.

    Violence (against self or other) is NOT the answer to problems we experience! May we see that more clearly is 2013

      Louis, Firstly, Compliments of the season to you. Violence is part of life, its in our DNA. How do we bring about a balance between our natural inclination to violence and rules and regulations of society? Education obviously as well as proper law enforcement boundaries. The problem is, is that most south africans dont have access to this and live a life filled with instinctual urges, its as if they live lives of 1000 years ago.

  • wendylg - 2012-12-31 02:39

    The negative/defamatory comments here are as sad as the story. WOW what a way to end a year to be so hateful, a situation like this could easily happen I wonder how you'd feel then.. if it was 1 of your family?? Shame on you!

      phahla.matwa - 2012-12-31 06:57

      Sum ppl r so heartless

      matthews.magodiela - 2012-12-31 10:51

      I agree with you Wendy. People are very quick to judge. We don't know the facts of the matter. Maybe the guy was mentally unstable. What if it was one of a family member of those people. People are very heartless I agree with you.

  • kortbroek.duplessis - 2012-12-31 03:24

    Well at least one thug had the good sence to hang himself. Other scumbags should really follow suit. Lousy story but with a happy ending

      lionel.defrontignac - 2012-12-31 05:58

      Bwahahahahaha! Sorry guys, but your comments are all funny :)

  • calvin.eighteeseex - 2012-12-31 07:37

    Beaches are a problem in our society, how many guys have committed suicide because of the women who can't keep legs crossed? Plus this was not a violent man! A killer won't use a pair of scissors he would have a real knife,plus he wouldn't leave unless he's sure you dead, RIP bro,I hope this woman is happy now,may she survive to witness all this unfold

      phae.rayden - 2012-12-31 08:52

      calvin.eighteeseexq, you have a serious problem you sicko. No-one gets to own anyone else, EVER! I hope the women around you are aware of how dangerous you are.
