Horror man beats wife to coma for denying him s.e.x. While a woman fights for her life in the intensive care unit, her family is horrified the man they allege almost killed her is walking free. The suspect was released on bail, which has infuriated the family.
The 28-year-old from Thabaleshoba Village outside Mokopane, Limpopo, was beaten to a pulp and left for dead, n@ked on the street on 21 September, allegedly by her boyfriend. She was beaten with a rock, allegedly after she denied her boyfriend s.e.x because he was drunk. He allegedly started assaulting her in their house, and continued outside after she fled through a window.
Her sister (37) said she feared the suspect would go to the hospital to finish her off. “She could be on her deathbed, but the suspect is already roaming the streets. We plead with the justice system to send him back to jail,” she said.
A witness said she tried to calm the situation but ended up watching helplessly as the suspect allegedly became increasingly violent. “He kept beating her until she fell to the ground on the road. Then he ran away. I’m frustrated as he might come back for me,” she said.
NPA spokeswoman Mashudu Malabi-Dzangi said the suspect was released on bail and would appear in court on 3 November. “The suspect is also prohibited from committing further offences or going to the village where the complainant resides.
“He was given bail on his second court appearance last week. The investigative officer was requested to get his profile so we can revoke bail, should it be found at a later stage that he has other cases,” Malabi-Dzangi said.
