37 year old female push off third floor by jealous ex-lover

A 37-year-old woman was allegedly pushed from the third-floor of her flat, by a jealous ex-boyfriend at a former men’s Transnet hostel known as Ikwezi in Langa.

Police said that they are investigating the incident that happened after the two allegedly had a drunken spat.

Police spokesperson Wesley Twigg said Langa police were called to the crime scene where they found the body of Nelisa Mjamba’s lying on the ground. Medical personel declared the victim dead on the scene. He also said that the unknown suspect(s) was yet to be arrested.

CPF chairperson Alfred Magcwaca said the increase in the number of women killed in the area was concerning. This comes after a Mjamba’s death when a month ago the body of, 26-year-old Asiphe Nqoloba was discovered in a shallow canal behind “Sanitizer” informal settlement.

Two days later, 25-year-old Sinawo Nono was shot dead when an unidentified suspect knocked on her door and opened fire.

 “A lot has been done in terms of GBV awareness in the community with the help of the police and safety patrols but instead, we see a surge in these incidents,” Magwaca said

Magcwaca encourages resident to come forward if they have information that will help police stop Langa from becoming a battlefield for the senseless murders of women.
