25-year-old South African lady, Zizipho Nikita Kalubi has lost her left eye after a man brutally attacked her for turning down his proposal to date her upon countless request.
Nikita said on Saturday, August 26,2023, while in the company of her boyfriend, the perpetrator boldly walked up to her and harassed her.
Narrating her ordeal to newsmen, she said ‘As a young woman, I’m not a stranger to how men can harass you, so when he started saying ‘Hey sexy, I want you’, making his crude remarks, I ignored it and continued to walk with my boyfriend.
‘Seeing how bad it was getting, my boyfriend asked him to leave me alone, and I thought he would stop so we continued walking. We’d been walking for just a few metres when he suddenly appeared in front of us again, and this time I couldn’t ignore that he was right there, because before I knew it, he slammed a brick into my face so hard that I fell back and lost consciousness’.
Nikita revealed that medics at two separate hospitals confirmed ‘my left eye was severely damaged, that it was so bad it would have to be removed. They also told me my nose was fractured’.
