21-year-old South African woman horribly beaten by boyfriend says police instructed her to "go and talk things through with him"



A 21-year-old South African woman who was brutally beaten by her boyfriend has narrated how the police instructed her to settle the matter between them.



Bruised, beaten so badly, psychologically abused, and barely able to see through her swollen eyes, Ntokozo Mbatha believed she would get protection from the police but to her shock, she was sent away to face more abuse.



"Go and talk things through,” a police officer told her when she went to open a case.







Speaking from her home in Alexandra, north of Johannesburg, mother of two told ScrollaAfrica, that the police took the abuser into custody and later left her alone with him in a room to sort out their differences.



Ntokozo said that her boyfriend, a taxi owner, assaulted her on Friday, October 8. He said she had disrespected him.Latest Post
