The attack took place in front of the first year student's 10-year-old sister and their 20-year-old cousin, her uncle said.
“He came to the house and did this in front of this little girl. My sister was at work and she came back to see her child covered in blood.
“Her wounds were too deep. Doctors couldn't help her because she suffered a fatal blow which destroyed some of her arteries.
“We are calling for the authorities to give us justice by making sure that when he wakes up, he is sent to jail.
“He took someone special from our family. Asithandile's mother is in a bad state. We are supporting her with everything we can do,” her uncle said.
