EVATON. – A woman from Evaton West has explained how she survived death after her friend’s boyfriend knocked them down with his car twice before he ultimately killed her friend Nosi Mahlangu (29).

The incident allegedly took place last week Thursday afternoon in Evaton, in an open veld next to Wilberforce Community College. Leah Mpembe (29) told Sedibeng Ster that Sandile  Stabathaba had asked both her and his girlfriend Nosi Mahlangu to accompany him to his home in Lakeside.

“On our way back, Sandile asked the two of us to go and pull rope in the front of the car as the car was giving him problems. That is when he hit the two of us with the car. I helped Nosi get up and we ran but he drove into us the second time.

“Nosi and I got up again and we decided to run separate ways.  Sandile chased Nosi and hit her again with the car, when she was lying on the floor, he got out of the car, stabbed and stoned her.”

Mpembe says Mahlangu died shortly after Sandile fled the scene.  Sandile allegedly committed suicide following the incident.
