A young woman in South Africa has died after boyfriend killed her inside his house on Saturday.

Asalinto Lumkwana was allegedly stabbed at the suspect’s home in Mchubakazi township.

Lumkwana’s friend Azipheli Nxiweni, 22, told the Sowetan that the mother later allegedly told community members that she thought her son was just beating Lumkwana.

“The mother even stopped people who were trying to help, saying Asalinto broke into her house.  My friend who was with her at the time fears for her life as she is getting threats. It feels like people want to silence her as she saw the whole thing,” Nxiweni said.

The suspect has since handed himself over to the police.

Police spokesperson Captain Jackson Manatha said a 24 year old suspect has been arrested and charged with murder.

“He is appearing at Butterworth magistrate court today.

The community is expected to march to the magistrate’s court to show support to Lumkwana’s family.
