Update to Man caught with married woman thrown off the flat

A 16-year-old Zimbabwean boy plummeted to his death from a sixth-floor window after he was allegedly found in bed with another man's wife.

Now police are investigating whether Nyasha Johwa jumped or was pushed out of a window of a nine-floor building in Claim Street, Hillbrow, on Tuesday.

It is believed that in the early hours of the morning, the teen was allegedly let into the flat by his lover.

"It was around 9.30 (in the morning). I was bathing, and suddenly I heard a woman screaming and thudding noises," said a visibly shaken Juliet Ndebele, who shared a flat with the woman.

She also heard a man's voice. It was the woman's husband. Ndebele had seen him at the flat on a few occasions, so she recognised his voice.

Ndebele said the couple were parents to a 13-year-old boy.

She heard him shouting "S'febe uyajola! (wh**e, you're cheating on me)".

"That's when I dressed and came out quickly. I saw her leaning out the window, screaming 'He fell! He's dead!'."

Ndebele said the distraught woman then threatened to throw herself out of the window as well.

"I told her not to do it," she said, "then I looked out the window to see what she was talking about and I saw him laying there nak*d."

Ndebele said she had not seen the boy in the flat prior to the tragedy and only saw him when he was lying face-up on the landing at The Lloyd.

Pulling aside the red curtain, Ndebele shook her head at the recollection.

When The Star spoke to Ndebele a few hours after the incident, it was clear that the memory still haunted her.

"I can't eat and I feel weak. My heart was broken because he's so young."

Getrude Sibanda, who owns the flat, said the woman had been living there since the beginning of the month.

"She said she just needed to stay here for a month to get her affairs in order and would move out at the end of November."

"His (Johwa's) brother was here to fetch the boy's clothes but could only find his denim shorts and sneakers."

The teenager's brother, John, 24, said his brother had stopped going to school last year and was working at a club in Sunninghill. He was not sure what he did there.

"I have managed to contact our family in Zimbabwe to tell them but I don't know how they're feeling," he said.

"I just have no strength."

The police have arrested the husband, who can't be named until he appears in court.

He is facing charges of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.

It is believed that during Tuesday's fight, he beat up his wife.

"We have opened an inquest docket because we don't know if it's murder or whether he jumped," said police spokeswoman Constable Carol Mulamu.

On Tuesday night, the husband was being held at Hillbrow police station. The woman is not in custody.

As an older man and a father to a 13 year old, surely he should have been rational enough to direct the poor boy thru the door then deal with his so called wife. Who would jump from a 6th floor when they are not prevented or threatened ? RIP young man. You are the victim in all this. Not this silly husband and wife. Hope they suffer the consequences of their sins.

I have no sympathy for this man in prison. He deserves it all. I don't even know why everyone is empathising with him. He is a murder and abuses his wife. As for the woman, I do hope she learnt a lesson.

Any man could have done that but romours say the boy jumped on his own fearing to be caught and there was no other exit door to go out,the person guilt here is the woman who got involved with a boy close to her sons age that's disguisting,she must be the one in custody not the man.
