“He found the boyfriend. He told him that he and Manotsi had a fight earlier and she was sleeping,” said Mateboho. “I then went to check on her and I found her brutally beaten.
She had a blue eye and her body was swollen. She could not walk on her own. She said her boyfriend had beaten her up. I took her to the doctor. X-rays revealed that she had a broken leg.”
Mateboho asked her to spend a few days with her and her family – but she died on Thursday after eating her birthday cake. Police spokeswoman Sergeant Ikobeng Hlubi confirmed the incident
