Student held for killing cheating boyfriend

2012-11-14 08:39

Johannesburg - A first-year student at the University of the North West allegedly stabbed her boyfriend to death after finding him in bed with another woman.

The 20-year-old woman was arrested after the attack on Saturday, which happened in the student residence room of Jerick Mokgabi, 23, reported Volksblad.

A police spokesperson said the woman had found her boyfriend in bed with someone else. The woman he was sleeping with left the scene immediately and was not hurt.

The girlfriend was said to be emotional and an argument presumably started between the two.

“She was crying loudly as she followed him and when they got to the kitchen, she is believed to have taken a knife and stabbed him to death,” said Captain Maloisan Polo.

    Eish,she just messed up her life for someone that was probably not fated to be with her anyways,how many people would kill to get into varsity? She gets the opportunity and throws it down the drain.

      nombu.mkhize.5 - 2012-11-14 09:14

      She's young and was obviously very emotional and wasnt thinking clearly and definately didnt think ok today I'm going to murder my boyfriend

      sazi.radebe - 2012-11-14 09:22

      Ain't nothing more dangerous than a woman scorned...

      peter.ndamase - 2012-11-14 09:28

      She had a massive choice to just walk away. What does she know about "commitment" at that age in this current environment, she probably confused love with jealousy. If she kept her objective that she is only there to study she would not be locked up now!!!

      vambozha.mutemi.9 - 2012-11-14 09:33

      at 20 she is not young Nombu!

      nomcebo.k.kubheka.3 - 2012-11-14 11:11

      I keep wondering what is going through in her head right about now. This is tragic!

  • Gcwabe.KaMavovo - 2012-11-14 08:58

    Ultimately he couldn't cheat death.

      @kaykay.son.50: When “spearing” in an open velt it is advisable to learn to “duck” every now and then. The man “speared” when he was supposed to “duck”.

      sechaba.magatikele - 2012-11-14 12:49

      really?! that's uncalled for

  • winston.whitehead.3 - 2012-11-14 09:03

    Im guessing he won't cheat again.

      kaykay.son.50 - 2012-11-14 09:34

      Say it again saint!

  • Msika - 2012-11-14 09:12

    She is a psychopath, lock her away and remove her from society for good.

      nanivintage.ngoasheng - 2012-11-14 09:24

      Oh Please!

      lorain.maseko - 2012-11-14 09:26

      I pressume you cheat?

      chris.buchner.12 - 2012-11-14 09:28

      Msika ignore the two idiots that commented.. She is and should be removed if she can stab n guy for cheating she can do worse valid comment.

      kaykay.son.50 - 2012-11-14 09:37

      @Nanivintage and Lorain Till you lose someone close to you or even lose yourself, you will realize making love is not something one can die for. No one deserve to be killed and worse so because it is about love making whatever straight forward words you may want to use.

      koketso.teisho - 2012-11-14 09:52

      What happen to the good old days of just crying and screaming...she must be locked away for good!!

      rochelle.kruger.14 - 2012-11-14 11:21

      its has been proven that there is a very thin line between sane and insanity. She is not a natural killer but all us when driven to a certain point where your pain body gets triggered can do almost anything so let us try not to judge

    When she finally comes to her senses she will be haunted and tainted for life with no education most probably,

  • sbmasango - 2012-11-14 09:40

    No one deserve to die no matter what the circumstance are. My brother is a student there and that boy was his friend. To think a moment of foolishness took a friends life is deverstating. Ppl really need to manage their anger. We can't can't continue executing ppl if they do wrong

      mqxekwa - 2012-11-14 10:25

      My personal view on the matter is very sensetive and I won't take any sides, but death or murder whether circumstantial or not\r\nMust be treated as murder, the death of teko has not only affected his family but every cycle of people who know him, the Teko incident cannot be justified and people must not post their narrow and petty comment cause we are deeply affected by our fallen comrade.

  • Lungi.j.charlene - 2012-11-14 09:40

    Now that's cow dung....

  • kaykay.son.50 - 2012-11-14 09:40

    Assess your boyfriend or girlfriend throughvarious emotional tests and discusions. If you have a conversation (happily so) and your partner mentions that should he/she find you cheating, they would kill you. Take that very seriously and consider moving on. The person means it, he/she will kill you and not because or out of love, but because he/she is a killer period!

      Khutso Rele Mokgosi - 2012-11-14 10:32

      just dont cheat. simple as that!

      Marc Anthony - 2014-05-23 17:05

  • durell.dunn - 2012-11-14 09:41

    Relationships are intense - someone who is willing and able to journey with you through life, should not be taken lightly. This person chose YOU, not anyone else. So be careful and base decisions not only on emotions but also realization of the pathway ahead.

  • ulandi.potgieter - 2012-11-14 09:46

    Dumb Girl really and how much money was wasted with her parents saving every month for her to go and study and that is the thanks they get over a man whats more important ??????

      roxanne.khutswane - 2012-11-14 10:03

      Don't judge unless you have been in that situation, we do not know how you would have reacted if it was you in all of this. It was all an accident the sad thing is that Teko died but it wasn't that girls intention to kill him.

      zimbobwe.mugabe - 2012-11-14 11:02

      I have been in that situation and my girlfriend just walked away. She was still in matric and didn't even shed a tear and we made up and all was honky-dory.

      ronzaled - 2012-11-14 12:31

      @roxanne.khutswane.. i think the word accident is overratted, firstly when she picked the knife and started swinging the possibility of her causing injury or death (to her or the other person) in this case was inevitable

  • mafunisamaanda - 2012-11-14 09:48

    Dear boys and girls, When awarded with an opportunity to go to school plz go thr and do what u r thr for coz marriages @ varsity will not gv u a qualification but unplanned pregnancy or you will go thru what we've just read nw which is very sad. Our parents are having sleepless nights just for us to get education. LET'S FOCUS ON OUR GOALS and the rest will follow.

      kevin.bareki - 2012-11-14 13:14

      I so agree with Mafunisamaanda.I can't imagen what the families going thru now.

  • nontobeko.dube.14 - 2012-11-14 09:52

    She killed yes bt she was emotional and probably regretting wat she did. I say the law should take it easy on her...

      jj.jeno.1 - 2012-11-14 13:26

      Are you sane? If emotional is the only criteria, then women could be murderous once a month and get reduced sentences...I've had a fair number of things thrown at me during that time for no good reason but murder would be a bridge too far.

My deepest regards goes to both their families, may they find a way passed this and may their wounds be healed.

  • rochelle.kruger.14 - 2012-11-14 11:35

    when something like this happens the emotional anger is useally not issolated usually there are more going on. We all are effected daily by strikes , politcal negative issues, e-tolls, electricty cost, stories of rape we all or people we know are effected by crime etc. etc. this all contribute our mental state and SA is a ticking time bomb and this is a demonstation of misplaced emotions.

      nompumelelo.madonda - 2012-11-14 16:31

      Life is full of disappointments and it is good to learn to live through tough times or else you lose your marbles. Reading self-help books, thinking positively about yourself, expressing your emotions, and so on may also help. Anger mngt is VERY important for your own survival as you cannot put all your trust in a partner, family or job...

  • lunga.mehluku - 2012-11-14 13:41

    Its a thin line between love and hate. In absence of the best solution she chose the worst. Lets nt judge bt rather double check ourselves so that we refrain frm such re occurence. What a WASTE...

  • khezia.mosmaker - 2012-11-17 10:41

    this is so bad hey. am feeling pity for the girl because i know she didn't mean to do that hey. but at the end of the day what can we say murder is murder and she will still remain behind bars. how i wish she just manage. and again if the boy didn't follow her to her room this would have not happened, she did this out of anger magistrate must consider that. lets pray for the not guilty girl.
