A gun-wielding baby daddy stopped the brutal attack on the mother of his child when she became unconscious.


Tshenolo Mabote (27) from North West Province was beaten to death allegedly by her ex-boyfriend on Sunday, 22 January 2023 in Marikana, North West. He is also the father of Tshenolo’s 11-month-old son.

Women for Change alleges that her ex-boyfriend went to Tshenolo’s home to attack her. He allegedly stoned her multiple times with concrete bricks.

It is alleged that once he realised Tshenolo was unconscious he then dragged her by her legs on the streets, continuing to beat her, while walking to his home with her.


It is further reported that while neighbours tried to intervene, the suspect kept on pointing a gun at them.

“He then took Tshenolo to the hospital, where she was transferred to another hospital. Tshenolo succumbed to her injuries one day later. Her ex-boyfriend was arrested at the hospital,” the report suggested.

“She is yet another stat, she was brutally beaten to death by her then-boyfriend.”

“GBV has hit home and it has left a permanent mark. Justice needs to be served,” the victim’s cousin further lamented.

The ANC Youth League in the Kgetleng sub-region added its voice to the senseless incident.

“It is with absolute sadness, anger and pain to all our young people in the region to learn of this gross act of GBV. We learnt of the passing of Tshenelo who was brutally murdered in her home and she passed away on Monday.

“We are not professionalised or trained to deal with matters of this nature and magnitude. However, if the public exposes such acts of GBV on social media and screenshots shared online by friends of the victim or anything to go by, one wonders what more links and leaks are needed for the SAPS to give these kind of cases a priority they deserve,” the Ward’s Obakeng Kamoka questioned.

“The ANC in kgetleng sub-region mazista ward 6 condemns any form of GBV and femicide and we further call for the revival of our street committees, community policing forums and ward committees to intensify the fight against GBV in our localities,” he added.

It’s reported that the funeral service of Tshenolo Mabote will be held at Silwerkraans Tlokweng Kududu Section this weekend.
