Although investigations into the matter are still on-going, it is suspected Mboni Mmolawa was angry with her boyfriend, Keabetswe Molathegi for coming home late.

According to a source close to the case, when the 27-year-old finally returned to his house in Manyanda ward, an upset Mmolawa was waiting for him armed with a knife.

A short scuffle then ensued, with Molathegi sustaining stab wounds to his chest and hands. Hearing the commotion, a neighbour called the police, with the boys in blue arriving to arrest Mmolawa and take Molathegi to Nyangabgwe Hospital. After two nights in a hospital bed, Molathegi was discharged on Monday and is currently recuperating at home.
