He was expected to appear in the Thohoyandou Magistrate’s Court on Monday, January 30.

Limpopo provincial commissioner, Lieutenant General Thembi Hadebe appealed to those in troubled relationships not to resort to domestic violence.

“This is yet another incident of gender-based violence and femicide perpetrated against a vulnerable member of society. The woman obviously trusted her husband would not again physically torment her, but she is now no more. We urge community members having domestic challenges to seek help and desist from resorting to violence,” she said.
