WOMAN KNIFED 8 TIMES FOR REFUSINGTO SLEEP WITH LOVER
A 35- year- old Mochudi woman was on Wednesday night battling for her life at Deborah Retief Memorial hospital after her boyfriend stabbed her eight times for denying him sex.
KelebogileSegale’s boyfriend only known to her as Tebogo from Sojwe allegedly lost his temper and attacked her when she told him she was too tired to have sex that night.
Segale’s flabbergasted older brother KeitumetseMalatsi who witnessed the tragic incident said that the couple’s bedroom shouts awakened him.
“It was just before midnight when I heard my sister telling Tebogo that that she couldn’t have sex with him because she was too tired.
I heard her beg him to let her rest but he kept on demanding sex.”
Malatsi, 27, went on to reveal that after a long and bitter argument, his sister started crying and groaning in pain and when he went to inspect he noticed that she had been stabbed several times and was clutching her severed stomach.
Tebogo had already bolted.
“It was really gruesome, there was blood everywhere and I could see her intestines hanging out,”Malatsi said. He then reported the matter to the police.
For her partKelebogile’s angry mother, BojiPilane revealed that she had long warned her daughter to stay away from the boyfriend because he came across as a violent character.
“He had moved in with my daughter in my house but when I realised that he had abusive tendencies I chased him away.
I don’t know when they decided to get back together.
I have never really liked this man. He is cruel – how could he do this to my daughter?”
Speaking from her hospital bed, Segale was almost inaudible as she said of her attacker: “I don’t know his age and real name but he is popularly known as Tebogo in the village, but I understand that’s not his real name.
All I want is for the police to find him and lock him up for doing this to me.”
Confirming the incidentMochudi Station Commander, Superintendent Simon Sitale said Tebogo was wanted for questioning.
“The man is still at large and if this woman survives he will face an unlawful wounding charge, but if she dies we will have to bring a more appropriate charge against him,” he said.
