“Apart from Ayanda’s attempt to throw her over the bridge, there have been other shocking incidents. He has been beating her severely. Zama had a fresh injury on her head that she sustained from a recent beating."
Another source said:
“Her boyfriend was jealous and abusive and their fights have been going on for a couple of months. It is not clear how long the two have been dating because neither of them is from the area. They came to the area early this year. Zama worked in Jozini and her boyfriend constantly visited her."
