Woman finds love after attack by ritual murderers left her face disfigured

33-year-old Nyelisani Sidimela from Makonde, outside Thohoyandou in Limpopo, SA, survived a knife attack by ritual murderers who mutilated her face.

The attack nine years ago took the life of her boyfriend.

She says "I realised my boyfriend was never coming back and I had to get on with my life. I have found love with Steven Mawela and we have a baby together.

"At first, it was difficult because I had no confidence and I used to put a scarf over my mouth so people wouldn't stare at the scars on my lips.

But when I realised the scars were here for life, I started accepting myself."



She said she met Steven last year when he visited her home.

"Ours was a match made in heaven. Life without him was empty. He is a loving man who knows how to handle a woman and I have plans for a bigger family.

"We named our daughter Mulweli, meaning 'protector' in Venda. The name reminds me what happened to me when I was saved by God," Nyelisani said.

Steven told the SunTeam that he had had his eye on Nyelisani for some time. He said he was not concerned with people's outward appearance.

"Beauty can be deceiving. A person can be very beautiful on the outside but be evil in their heart. She is the perfect woman and I hope we will be together forever," he said.
