MUT student shot dead allegedly by ex-boyfriend

This is the trigger sign made by Zolile Khumalo murder accused Thabani Mzolo as he left court

The 23-year-old is accused of shooting Khumalo‚ a student at the Mangosuthu University of Technology‚ inside her room late on Tuesday night.

Thabani Mzolo smiled and made "trigger signs" when he appeared in the Durban Regional Court on Thursday in connection with the brutal murder of Zolile Khumalo.

The man, who can not be named as he is yet to appear in court, is accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend, Zolile Khumalo, on May 1.

Zwane said the incident is suspected to have been part of a domestic dispute.

He said the youth league believed it was time for society to instigate a review of the current criminal justice system. "We must do more to protect women from being murdered by partners or former partners", said Sisulu.

"You will remain in custody for 7 days to allow for investigations to continue and then when you return to court we will then apply our minds as to whether you qualify for bail", said Motala.

Eskom promises no load shedding
The company received positive feedback in recent meetings with foreign and local investors, although concerns remain, he said. The company is now about 84% contracted for the period to 2025, with a shortfall of some 15%/year.

The MUT said the accused was signed into Khumalo's residence by another registered student.

"It is reported that Zolile was shot and killed by an ex-student of the university yesterday", it said in a Facebook post.

KwaZulu-Natal police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Thulani Zwane said police were called to the university residence in the early hours of Wednesday."When police arrived, they found a 21-year-old with multiple gunshots", Zwane told News24.

"An unlicensed firearm was recovered at the scene as well as ammunition". "The motive for the killing is unknown at this stage and he will appear in Durban Magistrates' Court soon".

Members of the South African Students Congress of Wits gathered on Nelson Mandela Bridge in Johannesburg to voice their concerns about gender-based violence and murders that have been highlighted in the news recently.
