Humphrey Khoza, 25, was attacked with battery acid by his 17 year old girl-friend while he was drinking beer with friends at a tavern in Cork village, near Hazyview, on January 17.
The girl accused Khoza of recording them having sex and made the discovery when one of her classmates showed her the video. When questioned by South African police she said ;
“I never intended to kill his penis. I was just angry and all I wanted was to make him feel the pain I was feeling,” she told a Sapa correspondent.
“I heard about the video from one of my classmates and I thought that they were joking, but then I saw the video myself and lost my mind.”
“I had to do something to show him that I was angry and wanted to hurt him so that he can see that he messed with the wrong girl,” she said.
She searched in her father’s tools for a wheel spanner she could use to teach Khoza a lesson.
“While I was searching I came across an old acid bottle. I took it and went straight to his regular drinking place and when I got there I became angrier. I didn’t hesitate to pour the acid on him” .
Khoza who has been dating the girl since December said in a statement to police ,”Everything happened in a blink of an eye because I saw her when she was coming with a bottle, but I didn’t realise that she was carrying acid. She just angrily called me a dog,” he said.
“She asked how in the world I could have done such an evil thing to her. It was only then that I realised that she was talking about the video that I took while we were having sex.”
In the video, Khoza is seen pushing the girl, in her school uniform, onto a bed. He added that the sex was consensual.
“We agreed to have sex, but she was not aware that I was filming the sex using my laptop computer. I did not intend to show anyone the video and I still don’t know how it got onto social media,” .
He has since decline to press charges citing that it would not bring back his manhood but the young woman is said to be considering pressing charges against him for pornography.
