An Eastern Cape man allegedly murdered his girlfriend, kept her body inside his flat, and dumped it in the outside toilet the next day.

According to police, the girlfriend, 37, visited the man, 47, at the Nonkcampa location outside Qonce, Eastern Cape, for the Easter weekend.

“Reportedly, the couple had an argument about a cellphone during the night of Thursday, 1 April.

“He is said to have beaten his girlfriend with a stick. The woman later succumbed to her injuries,” police spokesperson Captain Mluleki Mbi said in a statement on Tuesday.

Her body was then dumped in the outside toilet the next day.

He was subsequently arrested and charged with murder.

He will appear in court soon.

A KwaZulu-Natal pastor who raped one of his flock has been sentenced to 20 years in prison for his crimes. Pastor Sibusiso Gerald Nyathikazi, 40, was sentenced in the Ulundi Regional Court on Monday after he was found guilty of two counts of rape. "This is after the accused, who was also a spiritual guardian to the 19-year-old victim, raped her while at his house in Nqutu," police spokesperson Captain Nqobile Gwala said on Tuesday. Gwala said that in 2018, the pastor lured the teen to his home and raped her. "He instructed the victim not to tell a soul about the whole ordeal since it was going to destroy his reputation as a pastor. The victim who was traumatised told no one and continued going to church like nothing happened. "The pastor, who was trusted to pray for the victim as she was not feeling well, raped the victim again while they were attending another church service at Wasbank in 2018." The teen later reported the incident to family. "A case of rape was opened at Ulundi SAPS and the docket was transferred to the Ulundi Family Violence, Child Protection and Sexual Offences Unit for further investigation. The accused was arrested and made several court appearances until he was convicted and sentenced," said Gwala.
