Crime Justice



He wants to kill me, our daughter, and himself, says a well-known actor in trouble.

Most people who suffer from mental illnesses, notably depression, do not seek help and end up suffering alone. Some of them commit suicide, while others murder their loved ones. The truth is that the demons of despair are difficult to exorcise without medical help.

Given Stuurman, who portrays Kgosi on the hit TV program Scandal, has been accused of being abusive against his partner. According to multiple allegations, he has threatened to kill his girlfriend, thrown a cellphone at her and refused to repair the damage, and threatened to kill her daughter or any family members who would try to protect her.

He allegedly refused to let her accompany their daughter to his residence and demanded that she return on her own so that he could kill her. Stuurman's partner argues that a protection order against him was never signed because the actor is never at home.

Victims of mental illness will continue to battle depression unless they realize they have a problem and seek help. Abuse by Stuurman towards his partner should not be condoned. He must seek assistance before it is too late.
