Woman assaulted over lobola

Alex police spokesperson Captain Allie Kodisang.

A man from Hillbrow is under police investigation for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend for asking him to pay lobola.

Police spokesperson Captain Allie Kodisang said a case of domestic violence was laid against the suspect who beat the victim at an Ext 7 home at 6pm on 21 July.

The victim is said to have asked the suspect to pay lobola, as they had been together for a long time. The suspect was seemingly infuriated by the request and allegedly punched the victim in the face and on her head and hands, inflicting serious injuries which required treatment. He then left the place.
