The man who killed a troubled married woman who had gone to him for comfort arrested

Remember the story I did yesterday about a married business woman who had gone to her lovers house in search of comfort only to be killed by the lover? 

For those who missed the story: Successful business woman Nokwanda Maguga-Patocka was having marital problems and she decided to leave her matrimonial home and returned home.  

While home she met 49 year old Lunga Nqayi and the two started dating. He was her shoulder that she could lean on. 

But one can never separate sheep in wolves clothing from the real sheep. The lover ran her over with his car after a heated argument. 

The lover has now made a brief first court appearance faced with murder charges. 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.

She ran her own catering and events business. 

Provincial police spokesperson Col Priscilla Naidu on Tuesday confirmed that Nqayi had appeared in the Qonce court on a murder charge.

“The case was remanded for a bail application on October 13,” Naidu said.
