A KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) community is still struggling to come to terms with the terrible murder of a woman pregnant with twins.
On Monday, 14 August, Busisiwe Ngubo’s lifeless body was discovered on the side of the road near her home in Ehlanzeni, KZN.
The 35-year-old woman was reportedly strangled to death as she was preparing to leave for the hospital to give birth to her babies.
Ngubo reportedly left her home after getting a phone call from her boyfriend, a SAPS officer.
Nonhlanhla Khoza, MEC for Social Development in KZN, said gender-based violence cut short a wonderful moment, the delivery of her twin babies.
“The victim was on the verge of delivering her twins. A joyous occasion that was tragically cut short.
“It is alleged that she had been strangled and her body was discarded on the roadside, about 1km away from her home.
“She had shared information with relatives on the plan and were aware that she was about to travel to the hospital as she was about to deliver.
“The shocking nature of this crime has left the community reeling.”
Khoza wants the culprit of the heinous crime brought to justice as soon as possible.
