Lover who killed troubled married woman after heated argument arrested

A married woman thought she could find comfort and have her heart mended by a stranger but it ended in tears for her. 

Successful business woman Nokwanda Maguga-Patocka was run over by her alleged lover after she had gone to his house in search of comfort. 

Lunga Nqayi, 49, an alleged lover of the deceased, made a brief first appearance. The matter was postponed to Wednesday next week; also to allow him time to secure legal representation.

He was arrested during the early hours of Monday after he allegedly chased down Maguga-Patocka in a car in Ginsberg and drove over her.

It was reported on Wednesday that Maguga-Patocka, 45, had left her marital home in Beacon Bay three months ago and moved back to her family home in Ginsberg, where she had built a unit for herself.

She ran her own catering and events business. It was during her time back in Ginsberg that she met and began dating Nqayi.

It is alleged that Nqayi, whom she had turned to for comfort after separating from her husband, killed her after a heated argument.
