Court case proceeding postposed after a man allegedly pushed his girlfriend off a cliff.
A young man, estimated to be 22 years of age, had allegedly pushed his girlfriend off a cliff, leading to her death. This incident took place on Monday, 2 August, at Potsdam just after Nu18 in Mdantsane.
The man, whose identity is not known to the media, allegedly went to his girlfriends home to fetch her before throwing her off the cliff. It is believed that he went to his girlfriends house twice on Monday and his first attempt at getting a hold of his girlfriend was unsuccessful as her brothers did not allow him access to her. The second attempt was when he was able to get a hold of her.
After committing the crime, the man handed himself over to the police. The motive and argument that led to this crime being committed is not known.
The man was due to appear in court today, 4 August 2021, at the Mdantsane court in Nu1 but it was postponed for an unspecified date.
