“She constantly intimidated my sister and threatened her,” said Nono.

“My sister died because she was beautiful and doing matric.”

Nono said Boitumelo’s friends said that on Thursday they saw her get into a car after school.

They did not recognise the vehicle.

“We got worried when she did not return home but later we received a call saying she was dead,” Nono said.

“We understand that they took her into the car, drove with her to a bush in Klipgat and then poured petrol on her and burned her.”

Tumi, as she was affectionately called by her family, had dreams of being a crime investigator.

She was a dedicated pupil whose subjects included history, life orientation, life sciences, English and Afrikaans.

“She was a loving person, she did not want people to get hurt,” she added.

According to Makalepho , his ex told him she will only accept their break-up if he promised to date ugly women who already have children.

She also allegedly told him the new woman must not have a matric certificate cos she was angry that I dumped her with a baby”.

“I never thought she could do this, I’m traumatised.”

Makalepho and his ex have a 19-month-old daughter.

“I dumped her because she cheated on me, she cannot blame me for her failures,” he added.
