A HEARTBROKEN single mum said she is thinking of killing herself as she feels her life is meaningless. The 24-year-old from Thulamahashe in Bushbuckridge, Mpumalanga told Daily Sun she had been living in pain since she was raped by her boyfriend’s brother. The woman said her problems started in December when she was kicked out of her family home after her gogo died.She then moved in with her boyfriend. “My boyfriend was attending an all-night prayer session earlier this year when his brother came into our bedroom.“He forced himself on me while my kids were asleep,” she said. “He then dragged me to his bedroom while I was naked and repeatedly raped me. “His other brother tried to rescue me after hearing a noise, but he pushed me out of the bedroom before his brother got there.” The mum said ever since the incident, her life had turned from bad to worse. In July her boyfriend broke up with her and she left his home. “My kids are also suffering since a mashonisa took my ID and my Sassa card. He said my gogo took out a loan from him before she died,” she said. “Life is just meaningless. I feel like I can’t go on any more. I can’t take care of my children and I feel like a failure.” She said a Good Samaritan took her in and if it were not for her, she would be living on the streets. Councillor Madala Mgwena said the woman should visit his office during the week so he could see if he would be able to help her. Police spokeswoman Sergeant Abigail Nxumalo said a rape case was opened against a 21-year-old man.“But the case has been provisionally withdrawn from Mhala Magistrates Court for DNA results to come back.”
