Pretoria, South Africa – A student of the Tshwane University of Technology (TUT), Ntokozo Mayenzi Xaba, was tragically killed in her student residence on February 2, 2023.

The 20-year-old third-year student was found dead with multiple knife wounds on her upper body after her friends raised alarm to security at her halls of residence when they were unable to reach her.

The South African Police Service (SAPS) was alerted and after further investigation, a male suspect, Ngcebo Thusi, was taken into custody on a murder charge.

The suspect is believed to be Ntokozo’s boyfriend as he was the last person she was seen with before her death.

The motive behind the murder is believed to be a disagreement between the couple over Ntokozo’s infidelity with a wealthy individual who funded her luxury lifestyle.

The events leading up to Ntokozo’s death were pieced together by the police. Ntokozo was reportedly drinking with friends, including her boyfriend, on Wednesday night and the friends left the couple alone together.

The following morning, Ntokozo was found dead with stab wounds to the neck. Her ex-boyfriend was taken in for questioning by the police.

Colonel Dimakatso Sello, the police spokesperson, said that the investigation into Ntokozo’s death was ongoing.

He expressed his condolences to the family and friends of the deceased, and emphasized the importance of raising awareness about gender-based violence and its destructive effects on individuals and society as a whole.

Ntokozo’s death has sparked outrage and calls for action among the TUT community. Many students and staff members have taken to social media to express their condolences and to demand justice for Ntokozo.

The Tshwane University of Technology issued a statement expressing their shock and sadness at Ntokozo’s death and expressing their support for her family and friends.

The university has also emphasized their commitment to promoting safety and security on their campus, and to providing counseling services to students who have been affected by the tragedy.

Ntokozo’s death serves as a stark reminder of the dangers of gender-based violence, and the need for a collective effort to address this issue and to create a safer and more just society.
