JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police on Sunday found a mutilated body of a woman in Eersterust, Pretoria.

The 42-year-old woman was stabbed to death allegedly by her lover on Saturday night.

It’s understood she was last seen with her boyfriend, Clayton Andrews, who had asked for transport money saying that he was going to his new job.

Police said the victim’s sister made the grim discovery when she went to look for her, only to find the body with multiple stab wounds.

“Detectives are calling for Mr Clayton Andrews to report to the nearest police station so that he can assist the police with the investigation as he was the one who was last seen with the deceased,” said Gauteng police spokesperson Captain Kay Makhubele.

The motive for the killing was not yet known but police said they were searching for Andrews.

The case added to many others that were reported this week of women who were murdered in the country.

On Friday, the body of another woman was found in a veld in Dobsonville, Soweto. The victim was not identified, and police called for anyone who might have reported a missing person to go to the Doornkop police station.

While on Thursday, 28-year-old Tshegofatso Pule was laid to rest days after her body was discovered hanging on a tree in Roodepoort.
