Fourie said she and Valentine had agreed to talk afterward that day to iron out problems they have been having in their courting which led her to transport out in their residence and again in with her father.

“About 45 minutes once we spoke he arrived at my class. I didn’t make any eye contact but knew he had a white cap on. He asked me one query: ‘child, are you truely no longer coming domestic?’ I replied no and he took out a weapon. To be honest I do not know if it became a knife or what,” she said.

He could likely have stabbed me extra instances if he changed into not slipping in my blood. I shouted for him to forestall. I advised him I might come domestic but he simply carried on stabbing me. “The man who attacked me changed into not the person I recognize.

“He best stopped whilst a colleague opened the door after hearing the commotion. I believe she become my mum or dad angel that day,” Fourie said.

Valentine right now panicked and fled the scene.

Fourie’s colleagues all raced to assist her as she lay in a pool of her own blood and she said the simplest words she should utter at that point changed into “God help me”.

“One issue I am thankful for is that just on that day, none of my scholars pitched to my class. My elegance may be visible from the street and I expect he have to were watching me.

“He stabbed me 24 times. I had stab wounds to my head, thighs, belly – this become the biggest concern as my intestines were placing out – fingers, chest, neck, shoulders and again.

“I am now on the direction to recovery. I am a warrior not a victim. I am attending counselling classes, doing meditation that are all a part of my healing.

“I recognize there’s a purpose I turned into granted a 2nd risk. I know simply I even have a higher reason. I am grateful for all the prayers and well desires from each person. My scholars had been visiting me and bringing gifts. They pass over me,” Fourie said.

“The restoration has not been easy but I now want to apply this and fight for ladies going via this. I want to be an envoy for the ones sufferers of domestic violence, gender based violence. I need to help them, assist with the healing,” Fourie stated.

We desire he remains in prison to study a lesson and is derived out a better character, he nearly killed her . He is a threat to society and the community .
