Zululand Observer - Weekender - - ZO NEWS -

A 39-year-old woman was beaten to death on Fri­day night at the hands of her ham­mer-wield­ing boyfriend at eNse­leni.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, a quar­rel be­tween Sibusiso Nxumalo (40) and his girl­friend Siza­kele Nyawo (39) broke out at ap­prox­i­mately 7.30pm on Fri­day evening.

Nxumalo is be­lieved to have lost his tem­per and used a ham­mer to con­tin­u­ously beat Nyawo, who suc­cumbed to her wounds not long af­ter.

Nxumalo was ar­rested by eNse­leni po­lice that same evening and ap­peared in the Em­pan­geni Dis­trict Court on Mon­day.

His case was post­poned to 6 April for fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

He re­fused bail and re­mains in cus­tody un­til his next ap­pear­ance.
