′′ Why killing my child so painful ", these are the words of Mandisa Montana (79) and the mother of Jacqueline Mpontsana who died.

The pain of losing his girlfriend is Mponsana who said her girlfriend was given petrol and then she lit it." I wasn't there because all this happened to this man, I was shocked when people get here telling me that my girlfriend was burned", Mponsana said. He said he doesn't know what to do even as his girlfriend was taken care of.

′′ We still can't believe he left us and what hurts us the most is how he left, it's hard for his-year-old daughter, may God give us strength ", said Mponsana.

A family member of the family where Jacqueline told her on the day she got burnt they tried to stop her nephew. ′′ For the first time I want people to know that the suspect was hitting me when I stopped ", said.
