Bikwa allegedly threw a bottle of alcohol at Thulo and cut her on the face during an argument at the Courtyard Hotel while they were out with friends.
Thulo allegedly sustained serious injuries and had to be taken to hospital in an ambulance for treatment.
In her police statement, Boity said she was enjoying drinks with friends when they started debating about ancestors. She said the debate degenerated when Bikwa grabbed a glass and threw it at her. An ambulance was called and she was taken to the hospital where she was treated.
Thulo said she was still in shock and traumatized by the ordeal.
According to Thulo the topic was about ancestors and traditional healers. “I could tell he was becoming agitated, but I did not think he would take it that far,” she said.
“Before he attacked me, he said ‘let’s see if your ancestors will protect you’ and proceeded to throw a glass on my face,” she said, adding that she started bleeding immediately after he threw it at her.
“I am in a bad place emotionally. I keep replaying this in my mind. Not only do I have to deal with the mental effects of his actions, I now have to see a plastic surgeon to see what can be done about the scars.”
The glass hit her on her forehead and her lips. Thulo said she had insured her face a while back, for an amount she declined to disclose.
“In my line of work, I can’t afford to have a scar. That’s why I had the foresight to take out insurance for things like this,” she said.
