In South Africa, a 33-year-old woman was allegedly murdered by her husband, just one day after she withdrew a domestic violence case against him.
Lindelani Nengovhela‘s body was discovered in a water-filled pit toilet in their yard at Mangodi Ha Sundou, Limpopo, on Saturday, January 28, 2023.
The couple was reportedly in a toxic relationship, and the woman had filed a domestic violence case against her husband, which resulted in his arrest.
The husband, Livhuwani Madadzhe, also known as comedian SABC Livhu, was out on bail and was scheduled to appear in Thohoyandou Magistrate”s Court next week, but she appeared in court on Friday, January 27, and withdrew the case.
According to a Limpopo police spokesperson, the husband, 38, called the police on Saturday morning, claiming he couldn’t find his wife but was surprised to find her dead in the pit toilet in their yard.
“A preliminary investigation conducted by police at the scene resulted in the arrest of the suspect on a murder charge,” Brigadier Motlafela Mojapelo said.
